Devizes Carnival Parade

Devizes Carnival & Big Build

Big Build: Saturday 26th August – Friday 1st September
Carnival Procession: Saturday 2nd September 2023

This year we did things a little differently. We are worked with artists and creatives from across Devizes to help facilitate 7 days of FREE summer workshops for all ages leading up to the Carnival. Based at the Wharf Theatre we undertook our biggest ever community big build.

These workshops were for all ages and included making flags, masks, costumes and large-scale sculptures that will be towed on trailers. We provided all of the support, materials and technical know-how to bring your creative ideas to life.

In 2023, the Carnival theme was ‘Environment’. We purposefully choose a broad theme to accommodate all of your creative ideas. Our main focus for this is to consider the materials you are using. There are so many amazing costumes, masks and floats made using entirely recycled materials.
