Road closures and free parking in all Herefordshire Council car parks.

The Ross-on-Wye Carnival has been held on the first Saturday in August every year since 1977, making it the town's oldest community tradition.


The carnival is organised by a team of local volunteers and the event is supported by many of Ross-on-Wye's businesses and charities.


Every year the annual procession makes its way around the town centre, showing off a magnificent display of floats and fancy dress. The procession ends at the Ropewalk with a fun fair, many different stalls and a wide range of food and drink.


There is also free parking available in all Herefordshire Council run car parks for the whole day.


Due to the carnival a number of roads will be closed from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 4 August:


Cantilupe Road,
