Platt Fields Park, Manchester, M14 5LL
This year's event is themed “Soca Panoramic”. Enjoy the infectious rhythms of song and dance as the carnival procession winds its way through the crowds with steel bands, floats with DJ's, dance troupes with carnival queens and princesses, elaborate costumes and folklore characters.
This year's highlights include Calypso Corner, where you can, for the first time experience the finest live genuine Calypso music and The African Corner showing a wide and diverse range of African talent and culture. There will also be live Somalian musicians and a fashion show.
For this year only the carnival is a one day event until we get back home to Alexandra Park.
This year's carnival coincides with the Eid Festivities and the Caribbean Carnival of Manchester would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone celebrating Eid.
