The festival includes arts, crafts and refreshment vendors, and live entertainment from the Jim Fisher Band.
Family-friendly activities will include bounce houses, an inflatable obstacle course, tethered hot air balloon rides and carnival games.
Admission to the carnival is free, but there might be a charge for some of the activities.
