Carnival Arena

Manchester Carnival - Carnival Arena
Carnival Arena
The jewel in the  Manchester Caribbean Carnival crown is our Carnival Arena, and 2019 will be bigger and better than ever! On Saturday 10th, the Carnival Arena will be a sea of Colour and Sound as the Carnival Troupes and Mas Bands return from the procession.

Steel Pan, Soca Bands and DJs will accompany the returning procession as they are judged to find the Mas Band, Carnival Queen, King, Prince and Princess of Manchester Carnival 2019. We promise this will be a sight to behold as Mas bands from Birmingham, Leeds, Preston, Huddersfield and Reading battle it out with the very best from Manchester.

On Sunday 11th, the battle continues but this time it is between two of the Caribbean’s greatest exports Soca v Dancehall Reggae. There will be Soca Bands, Reggae Bands, International Soca artist v International Reggae artists, and they will be underpinned by the UKs hottest Soca and Bashment DJs.

Describing this as ‘Hot like Fire’ doesn’t even come close to what we can expect! Make sure you’re there early to get a prime spot, as this promises to be one battle that you’ll want a ringside seat for!
