St Pauls Digital Carnival


Organisers of one of Bristol’s most loved public events, St Pauls Carnival, have confirmed that the event, which traditionally takes place on the first Saturday in July, will not be going ahead in 2021.

Considered one of the city’s major events, planning for the one-day celebration of African- Caribbean culture is a major undertaking and takes many months of careful planning. Despite the government’s announcement detailing the roadmap out of lockdown where mass attendance events are likely to be allowed from 21 June it will not be feasible to run the event this year which also relies on several months of artistic preparation with the schools’ programme and community groups to create costumes and rehearse performances. Organisers will now focus on looking ahead to 2022.

The event, which is attended by over 100,000 people in the streets of St Pauls and surrounding areas, was cancelled in 2020 following consultation with Bristol City Council during the first lockdown. Despite this, organisers put on the first-ever digital carnival which was attended by over 250,000 people from around the world. A team from Carnival and local volunteers also organised socially distanced food deliveries on what would have been Carnival day in 2020 to elders in the St Pauls community.
