Eynsham Carnival is a village institution - bringing traffic to a standstill on the first Saturday in July. The procession begins in the Back Lane car park, so look for alternative parking on the outskirts if you are visiting, as many people do. Shirt race and parade follow the same route, but with different starting points. Luckily.
Run entirely by unpaid committee members and volunteer helpers, it has provided activities from one end of Eynsham to the other for over 70 years, with able support from Eynsham Shirt Race.
