Moretonhampstead Carnival


What a fantastic time we had at the 2012 Moretonhampstead Carnival

All of our new events were so well supported and we broke all records with our Carnival Fete on the Sunday before

Plans are now well underway for Carnival 2013, Our 88th Summer Carnival, and more news will be posted as and when updates are available so please keep checking back for news!

The week running up to the Moretonhampstead Carnival Day is packed with events for all the family with live music, tea dances, fun fair, fetes, fun runs and so much more!

Full details are available on our calendar of events link but check back regularly as this is constantly updated with new information and news.

Moretonhampstead is THE place to be on Carnival Day – Come and see what is probably the best town carnival in Devon and most certainly the largest of it’s kind on Dartmoor

Activities on Carnival Day include fun for the children in The Square where you will find Face Painters, Bouncy Castles, Music and Charity Stalls throughout the afternoon

In addition our regular Funlands Fun Fair, the Traditional Furry Dance, the crowning of the Carnival Royalty and the judging of the Carnival Entries all take place and all lead up to the main event – The Grand Carnival Procession!

Come early and enjoy the sights and hospitality of Moretonhampstead – A Traditional Dartmoor Market town that dates back to Saxon Times

Follow the Town Trail, Enjoy a real Devonshire Cream Tea at one of our Tea Rooms or a drink in one of our excellent pubs but make sure that you get a good spot for viewing the Grand Carnival Procession that in recent years has contained as many as 80 floats!

But it doesn’t end there – Once the Carnival Procession has gone through the partying continues with even more live music from bands in the square and the Funlands Fun Fair open ’til late!

Main Sponsor: Jelly Fish Payday Loans

More details coming soon!
