Buxton Carnival Day and Buxton Well Dressing Festival will return this July, having been absent for two years due to the pandemic, and the full programme of events has now been confirmed. People can expect the usual full festival including Mellor’s Funfair, well dressing displays, live music in the Pavilion Gardens and of course the highlight of the week, Buxton Carnival Day.
Committee chair Richard Lower said: “Saturday, 9th July – mark that date on your calendar because fingers crossed if nothing changes the carnival will be taking place then!”
“The well dressing will take place beforehand and the fair is coming back too.”
Richard said: “Organising the carnival is a big job. It takes months of planning and lots of volunteers beforehand and marshals on the day to make it happen.”
“Our last carnival was 2019 so I’m delighted to be back this year but since then people have either moved away or are unavailable so we could really do with some more volunteers.”
“We know there is an appetite for people to come to the carnival but we would love it if you could spare a few hours to make it run as smoothly as possible.”
