Ilkley Carnival 2023

About

You’d be forgiven for thinking the Coronation of King Charles III was happening in Ilkley when around 1,000 local children and organisations take to the streets in royal regalia on the 1st May.

The theme of this year’s May Day Bank Holiday Ilkley Carnival is The Coronation, giving schools, parents and local groups the chance to create a vision of golden carriages, Household Guards, kings and queens for a display of regal pageantry.

Ilkley Carnival commences at 11am on 1 May with its spectacular parade which begins on The Grove and ends at East Holmes Field showground which will be home to headline acts, a fun dog show, trade and charity stalls and a host of free children’s activities from the craft tent to Punch and Judy.

Ilkley Carnival is a not-for-profit event which invites people to the streets of Ilkley every May bank holiday for a fun family fiesta!

Whether you’re visiting Ilkley for the day or part of the neighborhood which makes this wonderful event the success it is today, Ilkley Carnival is a not-to-be-missed annual event which kickstarts a season of festivals and family celebrations in this wonderful town. With all profits made from ticket sales going back into the local community, Ilkley Carnival is so much more than a one-day festival – with your support and that of the teams of volunteers who make it happen, it’s an event that makes a difference to many lives all year, every year.
