Moretonhampstead's 90th Summer Carnival will take place on Thursday 27th August 2015 and you're invited!

The week running up to the Grand Carnival Day is packed with events for all the family with live music, tea dances, fun fair, fetes, fun runs and so much more! 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 start on Carnival Day at around 10am with fun for the children in The Square where you will find Face Painters, Bouncy Castles, Games, Street Entertainers, Music and Charity Stalls

In addition during the afternoon we have a varied market selling local produce, crafts and gifts from around the local area, our regular Funlands Fun Fair, the Traditional Furry Dance, the crowning of the Carnival Royalty and the judging of the Carnival Entries all taking place!


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!


We're easy to find on the A382 6 miles from the A38 at Bovey Tracey or 9 miles from the A30 at Whiddon Down

Loads of Parking available - Come in Fancy Dress - You won't be alone!
