Derby Carribbean Carnival

  • Jul 19, 2014 · 2:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Update: The news report  from this morning indicated the parade will still go ahead unless the rain becomes torrential.   if the rain persists then we will be heading to the Quad;  From this location we will be able to see if the parade reaches the Market Place.




Derby Caribbean Carnival is an annual event that includes a colourful and photogenic parade culminating in the City Centre. The intention is to see the parade as it enters the Market Place and watch the dancing in front of the stage.

The parade is due to arrive at the Market Place at about 3pm, so I have set the meeting time as 2:30pm so we can try to get a reasonable position; this is a free event and on previous years the area round the stage has been extremely busy, but there should be space on the route if we can't get close enough to it.

Supervised chldren are welcome.

    Thanks for organising this Jim as I've been meaning to go for years but never got there! I eventually saw it further up the street and loved the costumes.
