Swanage Carnival week 2023
Carnival week is one of our favourite weeks of the year. It’s wonderful to see Swanage come alive as thousands of visitors and locals enjoy the festivities.
In recent years the dedicated team of volunteers has significantly expanded the offering to include a whole host of family-friendly events. There are a variety of water and land-based activities happening throughout the day and into the evening.
Programme of events
The theme for this years carnival is ‘Under The Sea’.
Events will be updated as and when they are published to the public.
Take a look at the Swanage Carnival website or social media for all of the latest news and announcements. The team regularly post updates in the lead up to the event.
During carnival week itself we recommend purchasing a programme from the carnival souvenirs caravan to make sure you don’t miss anything. There’s always so much to see and do you’ll want to make sure you’re in the right place at the right time!
Swanage Regatta and Carnival is a free event.
