Parade & Fireworks

Monday 31st October
Parade 7pm
Fireworks Finale 8pm – 8.15

After a long three years we are delighted to announce that the famous Carnival Parade will return to Derry Halloween!

The Halloween parade traditionally involves hundreds of local performers from schools, clubs and groups right across the City and District, helping it to retain the community spirit that has always been at the heart of Derry’s world class festivities.

Organised by the North West Carnival Initiative, the Carnival Parade will bring the festival to a thrilling close on Monday night as some of the City’s finest performers bring the story of the 9th Wave to life, reawakening the river Gods for a fearsome display of magic and mayhem led by some of our most spooky spirits of the deep. The celebrations will culminate in the Festival Finale fireworks with all eyes on the River Foyle for a deathly display of pyrotechnics. Scroll below to view parade route.

If you would like to take part or volunteer with North West Carnival Initiative, email Jim at

The fireworks will take place on the River Foyle.  The best viewing points are along the Quay, from beside the Peace Bridge to Sainsbury’s.
