The Uitenhage Street Carnival has been on the entertainment calender of this historic town for the past 30 years and will be held on November 24th and 25th.

This festive event continues to be one of the Rotary Club of Uitenhage’s major fundraisers in support of local charities and community projects. The Club turned 70 this year.

The Street Carnival is proudly presented in conjunction with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

“As usual the emphasis will be on providing a platform for local artists to perform. This will culminate in the switching on of the Christmas lights on Saturday evening,” said Rotarian Terry Ranger, one of the organisers.

The Carnival will be providing entertainment for all with live music, talent shows, arts and crafts, food, street entertainers, Miss Carnival as well as an amusement park

There will be plenty to do for the kids including a playland, train rides, face painting, paintball and various other activities. Life-sized cartoon characters, as well as a magician, will roam the street.

Applications for appointment as vendors are now available and the deadline of submissions is Thursday, November 16th. Successfull applicants will be notified on November 18th.
