North Petherton Carnival is one of seven illuminated carnivals of the Somerset County Guy Fawkes Carnival Association circuit annually held in the month of November, in the County of Somerset.
North Petherton Carnival was first reported as being held in the 1880’s. The first Carnival Committee was formed in 1886, but Carnival festivities had virtually ceased by the turn of the century.
The Carnival has grown over the years and attracts entries from all over Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Wiltshire. Spectators come from as far afield as Wales, Cornwall, the Home Counties, the Midlands, Manchester and Yorkshire.
