Ilkley Carnival is a not-for-profit event which invites people to the streets of Ilkley every May bank holiday for a fun family fiesta!

The volunteer-run May Day extravaganza has raised more than £60,000 for local community groups since 2012 which supports organisations including schools, sports clubs, scouts and guides and local charities including Ilkley and District Good Neighbors, Ilkley Stroke Group and AWARE (Airedale and Wharfedale Autism Resource).

With a spectacular parade which starts on The Grove and attracts more than 1,000 participants from local schools and organisations, the highlight of every Ilkley Carnival is the day of family fun that unfolds on our fabulous showground which brings something for everyone from live daredevil acts to vintage cars, cricket and football matches, a funfair, an abundance of free children’s entertainment and a chance to find the most popular pooch in our fun dog show!

Whether you’re visiting Ilkley for the day or part of the neighborhood which makes this wonderful event the success it is today, Ilkley Carnival is a not-to-be-missed annual event which kickstarts a season of festivals and family celebrations in this wonderful town. With all profits made from ticket sales going back into the local community, Ilkley Carnival is so much more than a one-day festival – with your support and that of the teams of volunteers who make it happen, it’s an event that makes a difference to many lives all year, every year.
