30th Jun 2019

Join us this year for our 11th annual Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade as we bring celebration and spectacle to our streets!

The Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade is an annual celebration of funkiness, the art of the handmade and is just sheer fun! The magic happens in three weeks of workshops, open to anyone who wants to make costumes, carry-able art or help create giant puppets. With a crack team of local professional carnival artists, volunteers, guest artists and some amazing street bands, we create just the occasion for up to 1000 people to dance down the streets of Hebden Bridge, watched by thousands. Seriously, you don’t want to miss this.


The parade will start at 12 noon on Victoria Street, and finish in Calder Holmes Park at 1pm where there will be a finale, music, and food stalls until 3pm.
