| May 12, 2020

Given the threat that COVID-19 has unleashed, disrupting normal everyday life as we know it, Notting Hill Carnival Pioneers Festival will not take place this summer. In keeping with current precautions to limit mass gatherings and in the interest of public health Notting Hill Carnival Pioneers have decided to cancel its 2020 event.

The Community Festival is the biggest precursor event to Notting Hill Carnival and will continue with this tradition in 2021. To all our supporters, sponsors, entertainers, volunteers and the community at large during the last seven years, we thank you for your support and hope to see you in 2021.
