Notting Hill Carnival • London

Europe’s biggest and London’s most exciting outdoor carnival is a three-day celebration of Caribbean London, featuring music, dancing, and over-the-top and over-exposed costumes during the last weekend of August, a summer bank holiday. Over two million visitors come to see the masquerade parade and hear ska, calypso, reggae, dub, funk, and soca music. Though the parades finish at 9pm the parties go on late into the night.
