About Us


Christchurch Carnival originated before the war and is still giving pleasure to residents and those from the surrounding areas.

As with many things it was abandoned during the hostilities, to be re-started soon afterwards. At that time it was organised by the Regatta Committee.

Remarkably, this Carnival had now been successful for over 100 years and is run completely by a willing band of volunteers. This entails months of hard work behind the scenes, but our sole aim is to put on the best weekend possible for Christchurch, whilst trying to give a helpful donation to some of the local charities.

This Carnival weekend is for Christchurch, organised by Christchurch people and supports Christchurch based Charities; so is dependent on YOUR support too.

So please come along and help to make this Carnival weekend the best ever!
