The Notting Hill Carnival
is Europe’s largest street festival.
Started in 1964 by London’s Afro-Caribbean community
in recognition and in celebration of its rich cultural heritage,
the festival offers all:
mouth-watering Caribbean cuisine
live music from reggae and salsa bands
a pumping party atmosphere
and the jewel in the crown-
The Notting Hill Carnival Parade

The parade is a visual delight with
glittering, colourful costumes
and the streets lined with spectators
as far as the eye can see.

The music is blasting and the energy is electric!
