The Preston Caribbean Carnival is on De Road again to brighten up the city

2018 marks the 44th Caribbean Carnival in Preston and plans include a vibrant, colourful procession through the city centre streets followed by a Caribbean themed family fun day on Moor Park on Sunday 10th June from 12noon.

Local and visiting dance troupes will display traditional large and small piece carnival costumes and dance their way from Moor Park down Deepdale Road, towards the centre and return to the park via the Garstang Road entrance.

The event will include live performances from Caribbean Latin band, July Julay, Soca artists, Lutennants and Scrappy and Reggae band, Laid Blak along with other local acts, a steel band, Caribbean and other food and craft stalls, bar facilities and lots of children’s activities, including Caribbean storyteller, Coco P.

Celebrations start the day before with the One Park Ten Sounds music festival, a much needed new fundraising event to help raise funds and keep Carnival on De road. Ten well known and popular UK sound systems will visit Moor Park from 12noon on Saturday 9th June, so it will extend the carnival to be a weekend long festival this year.
