The Rhyl May Day Association released a statement on Tuesday 24th March to confirm the cancelation of the Rhyl Carnival set for Sunday 28th June 2020. In a statement on Facebook they wrote ..

We have been monitoring the current situation regarding the COVID- 19 (coronavirus) over the past few weeks and It is with great sadness that the Rhyl May Day Association has come to the heartbreaking decision to postpone The 2020 Rhyl Carnival.

Rhyl May Day Association organise a family event and we like to ensure that everyone has a safe and fun day out, so with the increase in cases rising daily and government guidance we would rather allow extra time to let the current situation pass, and bring the event back next year.

We all love the Carnival which has been a constant in Rhyl for 129 years, we hope you can agree that we have made the right choice in ensuring the safety of all visitors, visiting royalty and stall holders as the virus continues to spread.

We hope you all understand that this is not a decision we have taken lightly, and in the light of the situation, this felt like the only option available to us.

Please stay safe, Stay strong, stay well and look after each other in the times ahead.
See you next year!
Rhyl May Day Association.
