Dawlish Celebrates Carnival Week

Carnival Week: 12 - 18 August, 2023

Come and join the fun!

Dawlish Carnival week is one of Devon's largest seaside carnivals, taking place over a week in August. Lots of free fun and entertainment for the whole family!

The Grand Carnival Procession will take place on Friday 18th August. The route runs for about 2½ miles through the town centre and the procession itself can reach up to over a mile in length - taking 1 - 1.5 hours to pass!

There are many activities - many of them FREE to take part in - and events happening in and around Dawlish during Carnival week.

Lots of volunteers are needed to help with the events - may be you have some spare time? Why not fill out a Marshal Form (on the right)?
