Govanhill Carnival!

Posted | Posted by Morag Williamson

Govanhill Baths are organising a celebratory carnival in late August.   The event will see local residents and others parade from Govanhill Baths to Queen’s Park Arena where a celebration event will take place. The carnival will be celebrating the unique cultural heritage of Govanhill as the most diverse community in Scotland with a street parade, workshops, music, art and happenings. A fundraising concert is also being planned for the same weekend to complete the perfect family weekend out!

The Carnival will take place on Saturday August 26th, 12-4pm, with the concert expected to be the next day. It’s not too late to get involved in what promises to be an excellent event. Govanhill Baths are still looking for street and carnival performers and musicians to take part as well as community, local or voluntary groups who would like to work with Rags to Riches to make their own banner to march under.
