Dereham Carnival returned to Dereham in 2016 after a break of over 20 years. So far we have held the Carnival 3 times with great success and hope to continue to do so. 10,000 plus people have been attending the event and it has become an established part of the town's activities.
In 2019, July 20th, the date of the carnival falls on the centenary of Peace Day marking the ending of WW1. Instead of a traditional carnival we will be celebrating Dereham's Peace Day Centenary with events and activities all day. See the events page and also the Dereham Carnival website
