Basildon & Pitsea Carnival Association was formed in 2000 with the merger of Pitsea & Vange Carnival Assocation and Basildon Carnival Association.
We are members of the National Carnival Guild.
In 2015 we rebranded the old Fete as Basildon & Pitsea Carnival Festival. Focusing round a main stage with live music and entertainment, as well as the stalls and other events you would expect at a festival.
Our aim over the next few years is to grow and modernise both the Parade and Festival.
We hold the Carnival and Festival every July to provide a day of entertainment for the local community and to help raise the profile of many local groups and charities.
