Truro City Carnival

General Theme For 2015 is Mythology, Fairtytales & Alien Creatures

More detail for 2015 will be posted in January so come back soon!

Truro City Carnival is a celebration of everything Truro. Our fabulous city has a rich cultural heritage, fantastic music and dance groups, a thriving commercial sector and hundreds of voluntary and charitable organisations that do tireless work in the community.

On Carnival day the streets of Truro will come alive with the sights and sounds of a wonderful street festival to celebrate all the people, businesses and organisations that make our city such a great place to live and visit. Thousands of people will attend and follow the carnival from its starting point at Hendra Park to Lemon Quay in the centre of the city.
