Experience Somerset's most spectacular event of the year as it tours through North Petherton along the A38. Join in the fun and view stunning illuminated floats that have been designed and constructed by carnival clubs around the West Country. North Petherton celebrates its 71st year of Carnival in 2021 In recent years a grandstand provided by the Pentathlon Carnival Club has offered an enhanced view of our Carnival Procession and this facility will be offered again this year. Tickets for the grandstand are cheaper if brought in advance CANCELLED FOR 2nd YEAR

Each cart has a theme. The largest will be up to 100 feet in length and illuminated with thousands of bulbs. Carnival club members ride on the carts in fancy dress, often dancing/juggling/singing to pounding music. Hundreds of carts can take part in each of the processions, so a Somerset carnival can easily last for a couple of hours. Carts are judged and prizes awarded at each event.
