Welcome to the time honoured tradition of St Helens Sports and Carnival. In 2019 we celebrate our 120th anniversary of the first carnival, making our carnival one of the oldest carnivals in the Country.
Held in the village of St Helens on the Isle of Wight every August Bank Holiday Monday, the village sports offer something for everyone (and by everyone, we really do mean everyone from tots to centenarians!). The relaxed, family, fun atmosphere makes for a great afternoon’s entertainment. Feeling energetic? Our annual tug of war always has makes for some surprises along the way with a combination of organised teams (from local families, businesses, organisations… and pubs!) and scratch teams put together on the day.
In the evening we hold the annual carnival procession. Although it’s one of the shorter routes in the Isle of Wight’s carnival diary, it is still well attended.
We’d love to see you on the day – for more information on the events, advertising in our programme, or if you’re interesting in joining us in delivering the events on the day, visit the contact page.
