The carnival is scheduled to be open for eleven days, including two weekends, with an expected end-date of Sunday, April 7, 2019, closing at 11pm. The complete schedule will be announced soon.
Admission to the carnival is free, as is parking in the adjacent lots. Each year, the carnival sets up inside Midtown Commons plaza, 200 Hinton Oaks Boulevard, Knightdale, North Carolina.
For the carnival rides, you may purchase individual tickets, sheets of tickets, or a wristband for rides all day (single day). Ride wristband pricing for 2019 will be announced soon.
This Spring Carnival is held annually to raise funds Special Olympics North Carolina (SONC). Last year, the Knightdale Police Department’s carnival raised close to $20,000 for SONC. Captain Tracy Solomon (photo below) has served as the department’s Special Olympics Coordinator for the past eight years, and the carnival fundraiser has been held each Spring for 21+ years.
