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.


This website is paid for using donations from local companies. Please visit the sponsors page to see who has helped us.


Why not check out our collection of vintage photos in the archive gallery?

Carnival Royalty Float design

Competition Time!
We hope to shortly have a new Royalty trailer, and we are looking for a whole new design. So, if anyone is interested in coming up with a fantastic and special new look for this year, please get your creative juices going! Post your designs here from the website.

We need it to be fairly easy/cheap to construct - so try not to get too fantastical!! 🤣. It would be helpful to have something that is easy to store over the winter, and it also needs to be able to be timeless so that each new royalty can add their own individuality to it (such as colour/decorations/lighting).

The challenge is on!

Best in Carnival

Best in carnival winner is Dave Tout who took eight months to design and make these star wars models.

Well done to you all! We are sure you will be great ambassadors for the carnival and the town!
