Carnival Tent

The Shambala Carnival is the stuff of legends; thousands of people resplendent in their finest fancy dress, marching, dancing and singing their way around festival site. In preparation for the big event, the Carnival Tent will host workshops on Friday and Saturday, where YOU are invited to create masks, costumes and much more.

On Saturday afternoon the spectacular Shambala Carnival takes places. This year’s theme: EXTINCTION CARNIVAL.  Thousands of people gather by the lake to display their beautifully, wondrous and mindbendingly crazy creations. The excitement builds, the bands strike up and then it’s time to CARNIVAL!  We snake our way round the festival to the main stage where the winners of the best dressed troupe and family troupe are announced.

By day, on Sunday, Carnival Tent will host Shambala stalwart, Random Workshops.
