Hereford River Carnival
Welcome to Hereford River Carnival

Principal Sponsor

Visit this website on Saturday 5th September & prepare for the fun of the Carnival

Just like at the River Carnival on the Wye, our virtual Carnival will be packed with crazy, creative fun all day.  There is something for everyone with some old favourites, new stuff and a showcase for all the talent that our wonderful county has to offer.

We’ve had a tough year but we hope that on September 5th we can showcase all that is wonderful about our County and the people behind the brilliance.

We’ll have a main stage where you’ll be able to see our Hereford Heads film premiered on 4th September, more wacky video of Carnival favourites like Bym’s Bashers alongside a virtual Street Carnival and River Carnival as well as performances and fun things for you to do. There will also be clips and action from the live event featuring the Hereford Heads as they travel around the city.

We’ll announce the times when the special events are taking place but there will be a lots of exciting, fascinating, creative and quirky content for you to dip into at any time you choose – and it will stay there after the Carnival so that you can continue to enjoy it well after the Carnival itself.

As well as the main stage, we’ll have zones focusing on:


With the best of Hereford’s dance groups


Choirs, bands and musicians from across the county
