The Carnival parade spans back over 93 years!

For the people of Prestwich and surrounding areas, Prestwich carnival has been a key celebration in the summer calendar for many a year.

Once a year St Mary's Park plays host to a great family weekend, including a fun fair, stalls village, music and much more, culminating in the grand parade which weaves its way through the streets of Prestwich.

The carnival is organised by a group of volunteers who meet throughout the year to put together the weekend of celebration.

For 2018, the decision was taken to have a Fun Day on Sat 23rd of June with the funfair and various activities from 1pm-5pm and the Big Day with the Grand Parade, and all the other festivities taking place on Sunday the 24th of June.
