Charivari Day 2017
Folkestone / July 2017
Charivari Day came of age this year, as this was our 21st carnival. To celebrate we partnered with the 2017 Folkestone Triennial and all the costumes in the parade were inspired by the Triennial theme double edge. So as the parade made its noisy way through Folkestone, the audience was able to see within the hundreds of colourful costumes, with their miles of floating ribbon and sea of glitter, that there were glimpses of what to look out for when the Triennial artworks were unveiled on 2nd September. The parade displayed an array of extraordinary hybrid carnival sculptures that were inspired by the double edge idea of bringing two objects to make something new. Check the photos to see what you can spot!.
The whole Charivari process was energised by the incredible community and school groups who, along with our talented carnival artist team made this year’s event a huge success. More than 700 fabulously extravagant costumed revelers took part in the parade
