Worthing Rotary Carnival 2019

Worthing’s Carnival has been celebrating all the great and good in Worthing since 1921, making it one of the oldest carnival’s in the UK.

For 2019 the theme for the carnival procession is ‘TOYS’

The Carnival Procession is planned for Monday 26th August and will assemble between 10:00 and 12:00 along West Parade, between Grand Avenue and Wallasey Avenue. To help in ensuring the parade lines up in the correct order, please enter the holding area along West Parade from George V Avenue. The procession will depart from West Parade at the southern end of Grand Avenue at 12:30, arriving in Steyne Gardens around 13:30, where the winner of ‘Best Entry’ for Themed, Dance & Open will be presented at approximately 14:00 on the central stage at the southern end of Steyne Gardens.

In addition, a full programme of live entertainment (all to be confirmed) including Strongman, Music, Car Show, Circus Acts, Face Painting, children’s play area and a Dog Show will keep people entertained throughout the afternoon. A range of stalls and other attractions are also planned, both in Steyne Gardens and along the Promenade.

The ‘Best Entry’ will be judged by the three Worthing Rotary Club Presidents during the procession, therefore please ensure your identity number, which will be issued on the day, is visible as you proceed along the seafront.
