The carnival will see a colourful procession through the city, followed by a Caribbean themed family fun day on Moor Park. Organisers are hoping a mini-carnival will pop up in the city centre.

Local dance troupes are back in their studios preparing new routines and costumes to wow crowds, along with visiting dance troupes who will display traditional costumes and dance their way from Moor Park, down Deepdale Road, towards the city centre, left into Meadow Street, St Paul’s Road, Sedgewick Street and return to the park via North Road and the Garstang Road entrance.

The park event will include live performances from Caribbean Latin band – July Julay, Levi Tafari, local One Voice Community Choir, UK Soca artist – Soca Johnny, Phase One Steel Band, Kasia Masai along with other acts.

There will be Caribbean and other food stalls, bar facility and lots of children’s activities, including creative making sessions and inflatables.

Celebrations start the day before with the “One Park – Living Legends” Reggae Festival, a ticket only event which will raise some much-needed funds which were lost in 2020/21.

The line up includes Tippa Irie, Little Roy, Chanel One Sound System and our headliner International Award winning Reggae artist Luciano supported by The Mafia and Fluxy Band performing live on stage for the first time in Preston.
