Hello and welcome!

The Huddersfield Carnival is organised by Huddersfield African Caribbean Cultural Trust (HACCT) with support from the Huddersfield community and sponsors.

The overall aim of the Trust is to advance, promote, encourage and develop appreciation of and participation in African & Caribbean culture. Including carnival, street arts, African/Caribbean traditions, music and crafts in particular. But not exclusively through the provision of arts workshops, activities and events throughout the year and by the promotion and organisation of an annual carnival in Huddersfield in the interest of social welfare with the object of improving the condition of life of the local inhabitants.

To achieve this, the Trust works in partnership with statutory and voluntary organisations to provide a range of cultural and artistic activities.

Huddersfield African Caribbean Cultural Trust organises Huddersfield Carnival, a two-day programme of events held annually during the second weekend in July.

The organisation facilitates a year-round programme of participatory cultural activities rooted in the Caribbean tradition, with schools, young people and families which feed’s and sustains Carnival Weekend.

In terms of the number of participants and audience, a conservative estimate suggests that over 40,000 people attend the Huddersfield Carnival each year. Therefore represents a significant event in the town’s cultural calendar and provides a substantial boost to the local economy.
