Website BigBurnsSupper Big Burns Supper

Dumfries Carnival is part of the Big Burns Supper which returns to the streets of Dumfries in January 2025.

We are looking for Carnival artists who will work with our seven community hubs to create a magical float as part of our Winter Parade.

The outdoor street theatre project marks the opening of our festival alongside 600 costumes which have been designed by artists and made by our volunteers.   This will be performed by a cast of local primary school children who will bring the streets alive.

Each float will be built over a 9 day build period at our warehouse in Dumfries from the 10th – 18th January 2025.

Each artist will be matched with a community group who have their own group leader.

Deadline for submission is 31st July at 5pm.

We are hosting a webinar on 16th July at 1pm for the event which you can register for here.
