CALO Festival is an amalgamation of two major and popular annual events, promoting carnival arts – the Grand Carnival Costume Splash, organised by the Notting Hill Mas Band Association (NHMBA), and the Next Level PoisonUK Carnival Concert.
The Grand Carnival Costume Splash element of CALO festival will feature elaborate performances by some of the UK’s top costume designers and carnival artists – as well as a dazzling, pre – Notting Hill Carnival costume display.
