The Carnival has always been a major fundraiser to support the Havre de Grace Independence Celebration parade and fireworks. We are excited to have finalized plans for this event as well as bring a carnival to the community. The details at this time include:

Thursday and Friday, October 19-20
4:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Saturday and Sunday, October 21-22
1:00 pm – 9:30 pm

LOCATION:  Tydings Park

It will be located in the swale area just to the west of the playground and will flow into the City Yacht Basin parking area

Since Harford County Public School students will be dismissed early from school on Thursday, Oct 19, and will have a long weekend, it’s perfect timing for the Carnival. October can be an absolutely beautiful time of year. Hopefully, this will prove to be true for our carnival event.

Houghton Enterprises will bring the carnival to town. They’re from Cochranville, PA.

The carnival area will offer rides, games, and food vendors. It will also be fenced in. You’ll be able to purchase a wristband in advance and ride all day or purchase tickets at each ride plus a ‘small admissions fee’ upon entering the carnival.

As soon as the information is available, we’ll let you know where you can purchase tickets in advance.

As in all events throughout the city, it takes many hands to make them successful. We’d love VOLUNTEERS. Email, call, or stop by and see Christy  Silverstein when she’s at Joseph’s Department Store if you’d like to step up to the plate and give them a hand.

We’re excited to see this event coming together! Mark your calendars to join us for a great event!
