About ST. Pauls Carnival


Since its beginnings back in 1968, St Pauls has grown in size and reputation to become one of Bristol’s biggest attractions. Crossing generations through a celebration of Afro Caribbean culture, it is an event where every float, every stage, every performer and every person tells a story - and that story is how music and dance and community can bring people together. 


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
