Welcome to the Farnham Carnival


With Farnham Carnival now a memory from a fabulous summer in 2018,  the committee have been hard at work and are now delighted to announce the theme for 2019.  After the Carnival theme for 2018 of “Rock and Pop Legends” being such a success its no easy task to follow. With many great ideas we have decided to mark the 50th anniversary of mans first landing on the moon; and the carnival theme for 2019 will be:



and to quote the famous words from the song by Frank Sinatra, get your thinking hats on, and think of all the wonderful opportunities in the parade to follow our theme , so come along:

 " Fly me to the moon, let's play among the stars"

Farnham Carnival has been a feature of the town's summer scene for several decades and this year will be no different. Organised by two Farnham service clubs, Farnham Lions and the Hedgehogs, the objective remains to provide an event in which the community can participate and which all can enjoy. Farnham Town Council has been very supportive of this event again this year.

Any money made, over and above the expenses, has been welcomed and used wisely for local charitable causes. But this has never been the driving force. Above all, we have encouraged the youth of the town to take a leading part in the festivities. So if you haven't already decided to get involved do at least come down and join in the fun, its always on the last Saturday in June - so the next date is Saturday 30th June 2018...... Hope to see you there!

Two distinct events

The Carnival comprises two distinct, but complementary, events; The Fayre and The Parade.  The opportunities for participation in, and enjoyment of, Carnival have been steadily enhanced over the past few years. Please browse through the contents of our website to see where you too could become active in Carnival and we very much look forward to seeing you there. To get you excited at all the opportunities that the theme for 2018 offers -  the theme is 'Rock and Pop Legends'. Loads of opportunities there for all to use their imagination. Can't wait to see what everyone does, Abba, Spice Girls, Beatles, oh and so, so many more......
