For the first time Carnival is going to the Warren for an afternoon of events and activities culminating in a firework display.

The Planning Team has all been made up of volunteers who have worked extremely hard over the last few months in putting together a fun packed week of new and traditional carnival events  We will round off the week this year with the return of the Red Arrows into Carnival week, kindly supported by Dawlish Air Show Committee, which will be part of the Grand Finale Parade as we welcome ‘Rampage’ to the streets of Dawlish, a far cry from Notting Hill Carnival!

So come on down to join us on the Lawn for a week of exciting activities and entertainment!
