The Carnival 5km Run
Whether you run for fun or run for the glory, the Carnival 5k run has something for everyone. With medals on offer and official timings available, this mostly flat run, lined with crowds cheering you on really is a unique and fun experience.
You can even get all the family involved All the details and entry forms can be found HERE
The parade is the highlight of Carnival for many. Whether you are taking part on one of the many themed floats, lining the streets to cheer everyone on, or donating your pennies to local charities and good causes, you can find more parade information HERE
Despite a significant rise in costs to put on Newport Pagnell Carnival, we try our hardest to maintain an affordable entry charge into the field on Carnival Saturday. Entrance is charged at £2 per adult and £1 for concessions (Under 5’s free). Sunday entry is free of charge.
We are able to accept cash or card on the gate.
On the field you will find lots of stalls from charities, clubs, local and national businesses. Boasting a variety of games, sweet treats, tombolas and raffles for adults and kids, along with some beautiful handmade items and those other niche bits that you didn’t even know you needed.
Every year we love to spoil you with amazing professional main arena acts but we also invite some local talent to entertain you in-between the main shows.
If you would like to get involved as a local talent act please drop us a message using our General Enquiry form HERE
Food and Drink
We can’t have Carnival without our growing team of street food and refreshment vendor partners, many are some of the most popular eateries in the area.
With a plethora of food vendors serving foods from around the world to tantalise your taste buds, we are sure that there will be something to suite all taste buds not forgetting those with a sweet tooth too!
There is also the Carnival bar where you can get an adult beverage as well as soft drinks for all the family throughout Carnival weekend.
Applications for food vendors pitches are in high demand and we try to ensure that no two vendors sell the same food type. If you are interested in one of our food pitches for a future carnival, please complete the contact form found HERE
