About THE CARNIVAL
The first St Pauls Carnival took place in 1968 in the St Pauls neighbourhood of Bristol. The annual African Caribbean carnival has since grown to become one of the city’s greatest cultural events.
St Pauls Carnival CIC
St Pauls Carnival Community Interest Company (CIC) was formed in February 2017 to help create a stable and sustainable future for the iconic event. We are working to promote and celebrate African Caribbean culture and traditions, and to run an accessible and inclusive world-class Carnival and supporting events. As well as using Carnival to inform, engage and inspire people socially and artistically, the CIC is working with local people to increase economic benefits to the community.
