Elmer’s Big Parade Suffolk

The trail is coming!

For twelve weeks, from 15 June to 7 September this year, our next big art trail - Elmer's Big Parade Suffolk - is coming to the parks and open spaces of Ipswich.

The trail, which is based on the much loved character Elmer the patchwork elephant, sees the hospice once again join up with Wild in Art, as well as new partner Andersen Press, who own the publishing rights to Elmer.

The 2019 event, which coincides with both ours and Elmer's 30th anniversary, will be even bigger that Pigs Gone Wild, running for two weeks longer and with 55 Elmer sculptures compared to the 39 pigs we had last time.

As well as raising significant funds towards the vital services offered by St Elizabeth Hospice - the £200,000 raised by Pigs Gone Wild paid for one week's care - the last trail attracted more than 250,000 visitors to Ipswich and contributed £1m to the local economy. And we hope that Elmer's Big Parade Suffolk will be even more successful!
