Our History

Founded in 1985, Leicester Caribbean Carnival is an annual event that celebrates Caribbean culture with a riot of colour and music. It is estimated that 80,000 follow the parade route through the city center, making it one of the largest multicultural events in the Midlands.

 

The main hub of the festival, Carnival Village, will be hosting live entertainment from a number of stages.

Different stages will feature genres like soca, reggae, and urban contemporary music.

Local artists will be performing throughout the day, as well as popular international acts including Aba Shanti-I.

Expect Caribbean favourites like jerk chicken, curry goat and rum punch. There will also be a Kid’s Zone with a funfair and other activities suitable for the little ones.
