About Us

You may be surprised to know that Torbay Carnival has been running for over 100 years.
It was originally held on one night - procession night - but over the years we have grown and now we run over nine days of free entertainment for all the family. We do all this to help raise money for local charities and organisations.

(awaiting details for 2018)
