Carrick Carnival is back and it’s bigger and better than ever!

With more than 60 events in just 10 days we wonder how do they fit it all in?

The good people of Carrick-on-Shannon will once again host an eclectic line of up of events during the fifth Carrick Carnival which runs from the 2nd June to the 11th June 2017.

It all starts with an opening parade that must not be missed with fire eaters, stilt walkers, music, dancers and prancers!

The first day of the festival also includes both the sublime and the ridiculous with an Air Stunt Show plus the return of the Ball Race (get your bets in early to win great prizes!) and the Battle of the Bartenders (watch them racing through town while trying to keep their glasses full to the end!).

Other events throughout the ten days include live music, a funfair, story time, kid’s fun days, boat taster trips, the world’s most amazing juggling escapologist, pig racing and a fireworks and dance show spectacular.

The Carnival offers something for everyone with opportunities to get to know Carrick better on an historical walk or on an exciting treasure hunt around the town. There’s also a chance to witness a world record attempt!
