Aldeburgh Carnival - 17 - 19 August

Aldeburgh Carnival, as it is more generally referred to nowadays, is thought to be at least 170 years old. It has had various titles over the years, but was known as Ye Old Marine Regatta as long ago as 1835.  Once again, the town of Aldeburgh will be transformed into a colourful and buzzing family carnival, the Suffolk Coast’s festivity of the year!  As ever, the carnival will take place across the whole weekend, culminating in the fantastic High Street float parade, featuring the carnival queen, and late night lantern procession with beach firework display on Monday.
