Published on : Monday, March 20, 2017

Notting Hill CarnivalJoin London’s biggest street party as the Notting Hill Carnival fills the streets of West London with Caribbean colours, music and flavours.

 

Elaborate floats and colourful costumed performers wind their way through the streets to the sound of steel bands and calypso music. Watch the carnival parade, join in the fun and visit the tempting food stalls at one of London’s biggest and best annual events.

 

In 2017, the carnival is expected to take place on 27 and 28 August.

 

The festival usually kicks off on the Sunday morning with the traditional Caribbean carnival opening Jouvert. The Family Day or Sunday Parade then takes place in the afternoon, with performers showing off their elaborate costumes, as they dance and swirl through the streets.

 

The Grand Finale fills the streets with steel bands, mobile sound systems, dancers and performers every year on the Monday. Delicious food and drinks are available from the many food stalls in the area, and there’s more music and stage shows to be enjoyed from the many static sound systems along the route and down side streets.
