Welcome to Rhayader Carnival Week 2024

Rhayader Carnival is one of the longest running local carnivals in Wales and attracts visitors from all over the world.

During the week long spectacle, there are a wide range of events that will appeal to all ages and some that will test both your mind and your body!

The week concludes with the carnival itself which promises to be a colourful display as residents and friends of Rhayader gather for a procession through the town following our residing carnival Queen and visiting Queens from neighbouring towns.

A great week no matter how the Welsh weather treats us.

Here are just some of the activities on offer during the week

Welly Wanging


Treasure Hunt
