We all love carnivals. No matter who we are or where we come from if we know there is a carnival we are ready to go. However, organising a carnival is a monster. A carnival is a huge event and there are many things that go into pulling one off successfully but people make it happen all the time so it’s not impossible. Here are some tips to help you organise an awesome carnival.
Plan out a good venue as soon as you can
Every carnival needs space, lots and lots of space and this is usually an outdoor affair. Finding a good venue for one of the hardest things that you might have to do but if you are lucky this might be the first thing you have. When choosing a venue it needs to be big enough to host a lot of people and have all the stalls and other attractions. On top of that, it can’t be too far off from a city as people would not want to travel a lot.
Have a variety of different attractions
Different people like different things and if you want your carnival to be attractive to a lot of people you need to think about everyone. You can easily find a variety of rides for the children and young at heart. Getting a festival stage hire, inviting a few good performers and having a show will make a lot of people happy and finally, there needs to lots of food because people expect it. You need to start looking for these and start booking as you as you get your venue confirmed.
Know your people
Different people like and respond to a different thing and when you are organising an event for people it helps to know what they like. If you want your carnival to be successful do some research on the things people like and include them. This will also help you when it comes to marketing the event.
Pay attention to the small things

When organising an event of such a magnitude it’s easier to gloss over the small things but these are what affects the experience the most. Things like having washrooms, installing proper signs are small thins but when a person is in the carnival it matters. Other small things like getting great AV hire need to be taken seriously.Organising a carnival can be hard but also fun. Follow these tips and you will have something awesome at the end.
