Falmouth's Marching Carnival returns for 2018, led through town by the infamous Falmouth Marine Band to a FREE carnival party at Events Square. 

Every penny raised in the carnival is donated to local causes and community groups.  There is no mistaking the Falmouth Marine Band as it entertains the crowds on its way through Falmouth town centre with the melodious strains of the oil drums of the Falmouth Marine Band, beating down Killigrew Street, along Market Street, Church Street, Arwennack Street and Grove Place. With the Falmouth Marine Band often stopping along the way to fire the chicken from the cannon while generally adding madness and mayhem of the day, along with Betty Stogs who always entertains spectators as the peoples favourite ‘Carnival Queen’. 

The marching parade finishes with a free Carnival Party down on Events Square (Discovery Quay). Expect toe-tapping tunes, street food, and plenty of local brews. See you there!
