The Mask Carnivale returns!
We are thrilled to announce the return of a much-loved event for the 2023 Nelson Arts Festival:
The MASK CARNIVALE will transform our inner-city streets into a colourful explosion of joy, community and creativity on
Friday 27 October 2023
In 2023, as we journey together around the sun, we find ourselves 8 billion strong and 8 billion divided. And so we look to be part of the momentum - rewilding, regenerating, rebalancing, reinvigorating.
Let's embrace and celebrate this momentum, with our theme for this year's Mask Carnivale:
From reusing waste materials, using natural processes, Where the Wild Things Are or generat(ions) – interpret the theme however speaks to you and help us bring vigour, creativity and wonder
to our newly (re)born Mask Carnivale.
We can't wait to see what creative masks and costumes you will come up with!
If you're keen to be part of the Parade or perform during the Carnivale, please register via the button below by 30 September 2023.
