Now in its eighth year, the carnival has become one of the central events in our community’s summer calendar. It helps to bring our community together and meet friends that have not seen each other for a while, or even make new friends.
The carnival is not for profit, supported by a local charity and run entirely for the benefit of the local community. All proceeds made from the carnival go back into our community – to those who need it most. The event is organised, run and staffed entirely by volunteers, and if you would like to volunteer your time, or to get involved in any way you can,all you need to do is please click here for more information.
To celebrate our village, our culture and our community in a spirit of fun and friendship.
To raise funds to support local people, make lives better and and help those most in need in our community.
The carnival continues to grow and provides a day of fun, excitement, learning and celebration. This year will see a carnival of unprecedented scale, with over sixty stalls, 25 incredible attractions and an arena shows that will entertain the entire family. The lineup is expanding all the time, but the latest can be viewed here.
The annual event has grown rapidly over the last seven years. It is now the signature event of Shepshed’s summer, attracting in excess of three thousand people each year.
