The Carnival Association is just gearing up for the 2015 season. Our Carnival Queens have been selected and we have a lot to look forward to including the design and construction of costumes and float, various fundraising events, participating in carnival processions Island-wide and finally, the staging of Ryde Carnival itself. Elsewhere on this website you can find details of our events and as the season approaches we will use this page to keep you up to date with our progress.

Ryde Carnival Association Small Grants
We aim to help groups develop their carnival project to enhance their entry into Ryde Carnival.
Families, Not for Profit Groups and Schools can apply for a grant (normally between £50 and £150) by downloading the form below and returning it to the address given by post or email, by 9/6/15. An assessment panel drawn from our committee will meet to assess your application and you will then be advised of the outcome by 16/6/15. If we give a grant then this is on the understanding that you will be entering at least two of Ryde Carnival processions.
