Barking and Dagenham Carnival (2023)

Barking and Dagenham Carnival 2023 is set for Saturday, July 8th from 1pm to 6:30pm in Barking Town Centre.

Barking and Dagenham carnival is entrenched in rich history as it has been held since as early as the 1950s before being rejuvenated by UKON in 2014. It returns this year with extravagant musical performances, cultural food, and family-oriented workshops. It promises to be a great day out for people on their own, or the whole family.

There will be performances from local schools, community groups, street dancers, and established music artists.

Workshops where students can learn how to craft items will be running all day, in addition to providing steel pan, African drumming, and tamboo bamboo classes.

A Carnival representative said: “Our carnival allows us to raise an understanding of carnival arts regardless of any negativity that people may feel towards it.

“We want to encourage the community to stand together with a positive frame of mind to enable social harmony.”
