Well Dressing and Carnival

Well Dressing

Held for a week from the Saturday closest to St John the Baptist’s Day (June 24th) when the Five wells are blessed. Having its own private water company Youlgrave has more reason than most to give thanks each year. Other local villages hold similar blessings at different times throughout the summer. Please see the attached Youlgrave Welldressers Invitation

Youlgrave Carnival

Held in late June/ early July on the Queen Elizabeth II Field with a procession through the village.
