Past Partners

The Cowley Road Carnival is a one day annual street festival taking place in July in East Oxford.

The Carnival is managed by Cowley Road works, a charity funded by Oxford City Council, that encourages and enables cultural organisations and providers across the county to take part. The procession parade starts at The Plain roundabout in East Oxford and runs all the way along the Cowley Road to Magdalen Road. There are venues, stages, food outlets and activities all the way up the road with extended areas on Manzil Way, Chapel Street and Dawson Street.

There is so much to see and do, with something to appeal to everyone and any age.

This year the festival takes place on Sunday 2nd July.

We're looking for partners

iCreative project leaders Film Oxford and Fusion Arts are looking for project partners and industry collaborators. We are particularly keen to develop partnerships with inspirational leaders and creative sector specialists wanting to support and bring on a new generation talent to work in the local Creative Industries.

Please get in touch if you are:

  • An Oxfordshire based organisation working with young people – furthest away from the labour market – who are looking to realise their creative talent.
  • A local company working in the Creative Industry who is interested in investing in local talent and helping us build and expand the programme.
  • An individual interested in being a part of a young person’s journey in realising their ambitions and visions
