West Hendon Carnival will take place on Saturday 29th June 2024 between 12pm  and 6pm. 

Attendees can expect:

  • Rio Samba dancers, Salsa and Brazilian street dance
  • Band, Amapiano DJ and singers
  • Capoeira and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
  • Stalls, arts and crafts, Brazilian ice cream, luxury raffle and more

The Carnival will also offer arts workshops to design murals, crafts workshops to make street furniture come alive e.g. mosaic chatting benches, gardening demos and activities to support imaginative and sustainable planting schemes, and knowledge sharing talks to generate ideas for re-imagining the future look and feel of West Hendon.

The Carnival, organised by West Hendon Arts and Culture Society, is part of the London Festival of Architecture and aims to show how West Hendon residents’ creativity, cultural heritages, ideas generation and liveliness could re-imagine the neighbourhood, creating what people want from their locality and generating a buzz of excitement on how to make this happen.

West Hendon Carnival, Saturday 29th June 2024 between 12pm  and 6pm, Damsel Walk, off West Hendon Broadway, by Co-op, NW9 7DZ
