HAYLE CARNIVAL 2024 TAKES PLACE IN AND AROUND THE HAYLE RECREATION GROUND FROM 6PM ON SATURDAY 29 JUNE 2024. RUN BY LOCAL VOLUNTEERS, THIS IS A FREE EVENT WITH A FAB PARADE AND LOADS OF ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES…

All hail the Hayle Carnival 2024 in Hayle! This annual event that’s run by a dedicated team of local volunteers is being billed as the biggest and best yet. It is held from 6pm at Hayle Recreation Ground, off Brookway, on Saturday 29 June 2024 and the best bit? It’s totally free to either watch or enter a float! We’ll drink to that.

The centrepiece of the carnival is the big procession of floats that leaves the recreation ground at 6pm. All sorts of colourful floats, walking groups and even cyclists will be part of it. The 2023 theme was ‘Once Upon A Time: Stories to Screen’ so look out for the 2024 theme when it’s announced. See the procession snake around the streets of Hayle before returning to the ground where there will be prize-giving at 8pm. The judging is actually done along the route after it was successfully trialled at the June 2023 carnival.

Hundreds of locals and visitors are expected to watch the procession and enjoy the various activities for families that happen around it. Expect up to 40 floats and a buzzing atmosphere alongside some great local grub too. This is a fab carnival done the Hayle way and you’re all invited!
