Evolution & Growth

Whitley Bay Carnival is all about having fun in the great outdoors as we mark the start of the summer season. The annual carnival parade is the centrepiece of a colourful family day out bringing crowds to the Spanish City Plaza and Links to enjoy circus, street arts, live music and more alongside traditional seaside shuggy boats and fairground rides, street food craft ale bars, the arts market and trade stalls.

Since 2014 we have been celebrating all that is best about our seaside town and in that time our visitor numbers have grown from 2000 to over 12000.

In 2018 we grew our market area and offering trade pitches and stalls to individuals, organisations and companies who are either based in the area or who are trading in products or experiences that enhance outdoor living.
