The Nottingham Caribbean Carnival this weekend is one of the largest outdoor events in the East Midlands. The carnival is a celebration of African/Caribbean cultural heritage as well as celebrating the cultural diversity of Nottingham City life.
It brings you two days of family entertainment, fairground rides, an array of local and regional talents, a wide variety of food stalls, arts and craft stalls, three music tents, a ’Black Arts’ tent presenting various art forms, fun and games and international acts.

The event takes place from 12noon to 10pm on both days and entry is free
