Alderney Week
  • Various locations
    Channel Islands
  • Monday 5th August - Until Saturday 10th August
Alderney's biggest annual festival has guaranteed non-stop fun and frolics for all the family with all the usual favourites, like the Man-Powered Flight, Daft Raft Race and Gala Night along with Cavalcade Day.

Every August, Alderney plays host to the biggest annual carnival in the Channel Islands. Imagine over 70 events across one madcap extended week and you have, Alderney Week.

Alderney Week has come a long way since its days as a village fayre, with the festival drawing visitors from near and far to Alderney, nearly doubling the Island’s 2,400-strong population throughout the week.

The full line up of 2024 events is still TBC - So watch this space and we will update soon!

The carnival begins with the annual “Cavalcade Day”, where decorated carts and floats make their way through the town in the ever popular, noisy and colourful parade. Family favourites such as the Daft Raft Race and the Manpowered Flight keep all ages amused. The week culminates in the famous Alderney Torchlight Procession, in which 2,000 torchbearers parade through the town of St. Anne – something you definitely won’t see in any of the other Channel Islands!
