Notting Hill Carnival 2024, 24 August | Event in Notting Hill | About the event Notting Hill Carnival 2024

Join the city's biggest street party and one of the most popular carnivals in London, as the streets of west London are filled with Caribbean colours, music and flavours during Notting Hill Carnival. 

Watch elaborate floats and costumed performers wind their way through the streets in the carnival parade, dance to the sound of steel bands and calypso music, and visit the tempting food stalls along the route.

History about Notting Hill Carnival

Notting Hill Carnival was first held in 1966. It celebrates the rich history of Caribbean culture in London.

The first Notting Hill Carnival attracted around 500 people. The carnival has since grown to become the largest street festival in Europe, attracting hundreds of thousands to London. You can usually expect to see some 50,000 performers in the parade and more than 30 sound systems, with more than one million people attending over the weekend.

This is the carnival climax. It’s the last lap for another year and you can really feel the intensity of the party vibes. It’s what the MAS Bands have been preparing for all year: it’s showtime! Time to free up and just revel in the joy that is carnival!

If you haven’t bought a band costume feel free to wear your own (you won’t be alone), grab a whistle or a horn find a good position on the parade route (we recommend you arrive early) and jump up and dance as the floats pass you by.
