Hackney Carnival

Last year’s carnival took place on Sunday 8 September from 11am to 7pm with spectacular costumes, energetic dance, sound systems and live music from around the world.

More than 25 carnival and community groups joined residents in a celebration of Hackney’s thriving cultures and outstanding creativity, as the procession weaved its way through the borough.

The carnival also featured play areas in Gillett Square and the Town Hall, a live stage in Gillett Square and a party at Ridley Road with sound systems, global food and arts and crafts.

For more information about last year’s carnival please see our Hackney Carnival Facebook page.
