Edinburgh Festival Carnival

Join us for a breath-taking celebration of costumes, dance and music as we transform the city centre into a kaleidoscope of vibrancy, sound and movement – the perfect free day out for all ages.

Throughout the afternoon, 750 local and international artists will parade and perform throughout West Princes Street Gardens, with performances from KalentuRa Drums (the Netherlands), The Sprite of Monserrate (the Caribbean) and the Edinburgh Chinese Art & Culture Community. The Ross Bandstand opens with the sounds of soca, (Tropical Storm) and samba (Ilê Aiyê), culminates with a Latin American salsa showcase by The Latina Turners.

Full programme announced on Friday 14 June. Keep an eye on the website for all the latest updates... and for more information on the Goodtrees Mini Carnival.
