  • Where carnivals are shown as Closed, late regos may be possible by registering on the day at the rego tent staffed by the host club.  This varies by carnival and is at the discretion of each host club.  Where the host club permits late entries, a late fee is generally charged by the host club and is payable in cash on the day of the carnival.  We suggest that those who have missed the rego cut-off dates set out in the table above should check the carnival flyer published by the host club on their website
  • Carnivals marked * will be held on a Friday and those marked ** will be held on a Saturday.  States are held Friday through Sunday
