Oakengates Carnival returns

Oakengates Carnival returns this year for the first time since 2019. The procession and family fun day, on  Saturday, September 10, will be free to attend.

Locals are encouraged to line the streets for a traditional procession through Oakengates from 11am to noon to enjoy carnival floats, vintage cars, tractors, and performers. The procession will be followed by a free family fun day at Hartshill Park from noon to 8pm.

Free kids’ activities include inflatables, a climbing wall, exotic zoo, circus performers and face painting. As well as entertainment on the band stand, the live music stage will host top local bands such as Dirty Rockin Scoundrels and Something 4 The Weekend. There will also be street food, drinks, and stalls.

The organisers have opened applications for carnival floats, vintage vehicles, and marching band style performances.

Beth Heath, for the organisers, said, “Join us for a day of carnival fun and family entertainment. We want to give your family a brilliant day out, so all activities for kids will be free. With inflatables, a climbing wall, exotic zoo, circus performers, space hoppers, sandcastles, balloons, and bubbles, we’re sure they will have a fantastic afternoon.

“Plus, we’ll have tasty street food and drinks, and lots of local businesses running stalls.
