Following the success of last year’s event which saw thousands celebrating diversity, community and culture, the 2018 Govanhill International Festival and Carnival promises to be even bigger and better. This year, the event will take place from the 16th to the 26th of August across a number of different venues throughout the area. Businesses, organisations and members of the community have an ambitious programme planned, featuring everything from guided food tours to an Afghan Kite Festival.
This year, the Association’s community hall at Samaritan House and the Govanhill Community Development Trust’s community shop on Allison Street will host a number of events as part of the Govanhill Carnival and International Festival.
This will include a series of walks as well as an opportunity to discover the hidden history of the Samaritan Hospital building.
All events are free however booking is essential for the walking tours.
