Coleford Carnival of Transport

HISTORY

How it all started in 1998

The first Coleford Carnival of Transport was the brainchild of a local classic car enthusiast and resident of Coleford.  With the help of a few willing volunteers and the support of the local Councils the first Carnival was held on Easter Monday 1998. That first Carnival was attended by around 250 exhibitors.  The vehicles were parked on closed roads in Coleford town centre. Since then the Carnival has grown in many ways.  The early exhibitors were all individuals.  Club entries have been introduced to provide a broader view of individual marques. We are pleased that most of our individual exhibitors have been supporting the Carnival since it began. Motorbikes Model Railway Exhibition Craft Fair Entertainment Food Vendors Auto-jumble

The carnival just keeps evolving year on year!

The exhibition areas have expanded to cover most of the town centre.  The number of traders has also grown. And we continue to make changes to maintain interest and to improve the event. In 2009 we welcomed over 600 exhibitors.  And to make it easy to attend a Park & Ride service operates on the day. We hope that you can join the thousands who enjoy the Coleford Carnival of Transport for years to come.
