St Paul’s Carnival will return to Bristol next year!
The event, which commemorates Bristol’s culture and Afrikan Caribbean community, hasn’t taken place over the last two years, but will be back next year, taking place on July 1st 2017.
Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees is delighted St Paul’s Carnival will return to the streets of the city.
He says: “St Paul’s Carnival is and always will be a huge part of this city’s cultural identity. It’s important that we bring this showcase of Afrikan Caribbean culture back to the city streets so we will can again embrace the important role the community plays in our city life.
“I fully support the move to put in place a viable and sustainable plan and organisation to secure the future of Carnival as we approach its half century in 2018.”
