Raising money for local charities

It’s not just about having a fun-filled day in Stockport – every year Stockport Carnival raises thousands of pounds for local charities and community groups. If you’re coming to watch the parade please keep an eye out for the collection buckets and give what you can.

Volunteers wanted

The carnival is run by a small team of hard-working volunteers but we’re always in need of extra pairs of hands to help keep this wonderful Stockport tradition alive. Could you spare a few hours to help?


This year we’re are especially in need of people who could help as marshals on carnival day. If you can spare some time to help us please get in touch via our contact form.
