It is never an easy job to organize any event but it is not impossible. Same goes when organizing a carnival. The difference of organizing a carnival and any other ordinary event would be that this even would mostly be fund raiser and be organized as an open event to everyone. It will require a lot of effort a number of committees to work together to make the event a success. How this event generates or raises funds is by selling tickets to the participants at the entrance and as well as tickets to play games. Where if they win the games they will be able get some prizes. You also organize tickets to for food stalls as well but mostly this is outsourced by shops putting up stalls to sell their items.
Costs that may involve in organizing the carnival may be a lot if you are organizing it for the first time. You will have to set up games by either borrowing or buying and this will cost a lot a lot. After you purchase it will be quite easy to get them again for the next year’s carnival. Not only games but also food, prizes and stalls also include costs. What I see at most carnivals is that there is not a proper rubbish removal system in place.
Thus, there is always a lot of litter around a carnival area. Make sure to add a lot of garbage bins around so that people don’t just litter on the ground. Skip bin hire is available for this sort of thing. You can certain people in charge of the garbage to make sure that the when the garbage bins are full to empty them in to the skip bins.

It is not the lack of money but the lack of ideas is what I always say. Best way to reduce cost is get local businesses to contribute towards the event. You can approach the local businesses and ask them to host a game on their own, in return for advertising at the carnival. They may choose any game they want. It will be nice if is related to their business. You may mention their sponsorship of the game at stall or at the entrance. Large companies can help with contributing for the prizes in terms of gift vouchers or discount coupons. Chances of getting these sponsorship increase if it is a fund raiser for charity and if it helps them reduce their tax payments.
Once the pre – event planning is done make sure to divide and coordinate all the individuals in committees and give them separate responsibilities. They can be volunteers, cashiers, in charge of stalls, etc. Have a check list of requirements to make sure you don’t miss anything.
