Burnham-on-Sea Carnival

On Monday 4th November 2024 Burnham-on-Sea will be lit up by the famous carnival procession through the streets of town.

Many thousands of people from all over Britain make the journey to this part of Somerset to watch our November carnival. Watching dozens of dazzling illuminated floats parade through the streets is an amazing spectacle! Over one hundred giant Carnival floats will pass before your eyes, each one pulsating with music and aglow with the lights from thousands of coloured light bulbs, fantastically coloured costumes and special effects to create a magical evening of entertainment. The origins of the carnival lie in Bridgwater where the inhabitants commemorated the date of Guy Fawkes’ attempt in 1605 to blow up parliament with a parade.
