The Notting Hill Carnival, Europe's biggest street festival is an annual grand event that has been held every year since 1965 on the streets of Notting Hill, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, UK in the month of August, over two days.

It is led by members of the West Indian community, particularly the Trinidadian and Tobagonian British population or "Trinis", many of whom have lived in the area since the 1950s. The carnival has attracted around one million people in the past years, making it one of the largest street festivals in the world.
