Notting Hill Carnival (August 25th-26th)

The Notting Hill Carnival is an annual Caribbean Carnival event that has taken place in London since 1966 on the streets of the Notting Hill area of Kensington over the August Bank Holiday weekend. NHC is Europe‘s largest street festival. It celebrates Caribbean culture with vibrant parades, steel bands, calypso music, and delicious food. The Notting Hill Carnival turns West London into a colorful display of African-Caribbean culture. I have been a few times, and it’s always an adventure and a lot of fun: great food, great music, and good times.
