Chelmsford festival


Welcome to Chelmsford Carnival, a walking parade making us one of the UK’s only eco-friendly carnivals. No sitting on lorries, just a mile long accessible route through three beautiful parks before finishing in the city centre. Walk, dance, skip, twirl, hop, or whatever takes your fancy, come and be part of the parade. Everyone is welcome!
FLOATS! Think go-karts, bikes, push chairs, trollies, as long as they are non-motorised. COSTUMES! Think colour, big masks, think razzmatazz. NOISE! Think whistles, marching bands, samba, drumming. FLAGS! Think big bright & beautiful. So get your creative thinking caps on – there are prizes to be won!
Need some ideas? Then why not watch the videos from our youtube channel to learn how to be part of our ‘Chelmsford Junk Band‘ by making instruments from re-cycled materials!

CALLING ALL BUSINESSES! For a small charity donation why not use this as an opportunity to promote your work and engage directly with the people of Chelmsford. Enter a float for your chance to bask in the glory of being crowned ‘BEST BUSINESS FLOAT 2022’. You have to be in it to win it as they say. 

Starting at 1pm the route will follow the public footpath from Admirals Park, travelling through Central Park & Bell Meadows Park , over Stonebridge Walk, up the Hight St, right into Springfield finishing in Backnang Sq where there will be a host of activities to keep you amused for the afternoon.
