The procession is starts from Grand Avenue at midday on Monday, August 28, moving along the seafront to Steyne Gardens.

Head along to the gardens – the circus and the clowns are back, as is our dog show, the strong man, It’s A Knockout!, a very special music organ, lots of new amusements, luxury products stalls and of course local charity stalls.

Look out for the traditional tea tent and bar, lots of food choices.

Sunshine Radio and More Radio will be there and there will be new cars on display too.

We’ve got live music both days with lots of local groups and performers with some great, different music – come along, see and listen.

Look out for our Rotary collectors too, they will be around and about, with your donations going to local charities.

The three Worthing Rotary clubs join up to present the carnival.

The Worthing Steyne club has now slimmed down ready to be a part of the event in future.

We have some vacancies for you if you would like to join us.

We are also adding an email to keep in touch with club members.

All three clubs are proud of our 97-year carnival history.
