Welcome to the Launceston Carnival Website

The Launceston Carnival Website is here to let you keep up to date with all the latest news surrounding the carnival. You can also use the website to download the necessary forms to enter for the coming carnival. We hope to develop the website in coming years to keep a history of the carnival and have a media rich archive. Please feel free to explore and roam the website.


Want to help? We are looking for helpers to perform a range of tasks for the coming carnival, if you would like to help out please use the contact us form on the website.


We are looking for old photos of the carnival from the past to add to the archives gallery. If you have any pics/snaps which you think people might like to see then please upload them from the gallery page.
