Frome Carnival takes place each year on a Saturday towards the end of September. There’s an afternoon and evening procession, much of the local community gets involved and the carnival helps to raise funds for a number of groups and charities in Frome.
Frome Carnival is this weekend (24th September) and is set to be as vibrant as ever. With two procession routes, there’s a little something for everyone to enjoy. The afternoon event begins at Frome’s largest park Victoria Park at 2.30pm.
The evening procession begins at Marston Trading Estate at 7pm.
Carnival programmes are available in our Information Centre point for £1, with a chance to win £50 if the Carnival Queen selects your lucky number printed on the back of your programme.
