About Us

Shrewsbury Carnival and Show is one of the largest free one day community events held in Shrewsbury, bringing together the local community and helping to promote local charities and organisations.

A small group of people from the local community plan the Carnival and the other fundraising events throughout the year, encouraging local dance groups, bands and performers to entertain the crowds on the day, as well as taking part in the Parade which is the main focal point of the day.

The committee rely on donations from local businesses and fundraising to be able to put on the event, which raises valuable funds for local charities, groups and organisations that may not have the means to raise the money themselves because they rely on volunteers, don’t have a marketing budget or are not known within the wider community.

Thank you to everybody who has donated money to benefit the local charities we collect for!
