Moretonhampstead is THE place to be on Carnival Day
Come and see what is probably the best town carnival in Devon and most certainly the largest of it's kind on Dartmoor. Activities on Carnival Day include fun for the children in The Square where you will find Face Painters, Bouncy Castles, Music and Charity Stalls throughout the afternoon
In addition our regular Funlands Fun Fair, the Traditional Furry Dance, the crowning of the Carnival Royalty and the judging of the Carnival Entries all take place and all lead up to the main event - The Grand Carnival Procession!
Come early and enjoy the sights and hospitality of Moretonhampstead - A Traditional Dartmoor Market town that dates back to Saxon Times
Follow the Town Trail, Enjoy a real Devonshire Cream Tea at one of our Tea Rooms or a drink in one of our excellent pubs but make sure that you get a good spot for viewing the Grand Carnival Procession that in recent years has contained as many as 80 floats!
But it doesn't end there - Once the Carnival Procession has gone through the partying continues with even more live music from bands in the square and the Funlands Fun Fair open 'til late!
Our new Country Fayre is destined to be our largest event ever with two full days of entertainment for all the family
