With jaw dropping costumes from across the UK and the perfect recipe of tastes, sights and sounds, Leeds West Indian Carnival is the oldest and one of the most adored Caribbean carnivals in Europe.
In 2018 we’re all set to build on an unforgettable 50th anniversary in 2017. This year we’ll celebrate 51 years with the usual frenzy of preparation culminating in one of the North of England’s biggest events on the last Monday in August.
We’ll keep you posted with exciting plans for Leeds Carnival 2018 or contact us for more information. Until then here’s a taste of what to expect;

J’OUVERT MORNING

Start Carnival Day the Caribbean way! This traditional early morning soca music jam is the perfect warm-up for the parade later on in the day. Originating from the French for ‘day open’ or ‘opening day’, J’Ouvert is also known as ‘pyjama jamming’ so it’s perfect for your P.J’S, nighties, onesies and fancy dress. Whatever you choose, don’t forget to set your alarm clock!

THE BIG LEEDS CARNIVAL PARADE 2018

Once again the Leeds Carnival parade is all set to bring the streets of Leeds to life with an explosion of colour, amazing costumes, addictive rhythms and an unrivalled welcoming atmosphere. The Carnival King, Queen, Prince and Princess costumes are joined by unbelievable troupes with sound systems and steel pans on floats pumping the infectious sounds of the Caribbean.

This really is fun for all the family. Top tip? Come early, pick a good spot and get happy!
