Derby Caribbean Carnival will take place on Sunday 16th July.
This year Derby West Indian Community Association (DWICA) celebrates its 42nd year of hosting Derby Caribbean Carnival by combining a high-quality carnival parade and park event on Osmaston Park on Sunday 16th July.
As in previous year’s this carnival promises to be a true Flagship community cohesion event that showcases a large number of carnival troupes within its street procession from various cities in the UK such as Nottingham, Leicester, London, Leeds and, of course, Derby.
Despite recent losses in City Council funding, Carnival organisers DWICA recognise the importance of continuing the only African Caribbean flagship in Derby that attracts thousands of nation-wide revellers to the city. It still receives funding from Arts Council England through its partnership with EMCCAN.
At the park, there will be a fun fair, costume exhibition, catering stalls, arts and crafts, and a vibrant stage show for all to enjoy.
