Carnival @ Home ’21

Due to the uncertainties and unpredictable nature of the pandemic, plans for Carnival celebrations of this year’s theme ‘Mother Earth’ will feature House Floats around the city, virtual livestreams on the day (4th July 2021) and  community get togethers within Government guidelines.

With all the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic and organising large events, we have not been able to plan for a typical Carnival Day with up to 50,000 people crowded together on the street.

Keeping members of the public safe is of paramount importance and so we have determined on an innovative celebration of our theme Mother Earth which will bring the party to the people – rather than people to the party!

This year we celebrate our 20th birthday.  Click here to find out more about the history of the Cowley Road Carnival.
