Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade

Join us this year for our 10th 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, carryable art or help create giant puppets. With an ace team of local professional carnival artists, volunteers, guest artists and some killer 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.
