…a gigantic four-day street-festival in Berlin

Just as every other year, Berlin is going to proudly present the Carnival of Cultures, which will take place between May 29th and June 1st in 2009, with a four-day street-festival, the Parade (31st of May) and various parties throughout the whole city.

Approximately 5.200 protagonists will perform on- and off-stage during the programme of the street festival and will participate in the Parade on Sunday. The city expects about 1.4 million visitors from all over the world, who will join this gigantic summer-festival.

But it’s more than just a big party – the Carnival of Cultures is a reflection of Berlin‘s cultural diversity. It brings together professional artists and amateurs, young and old, and – furthermore – is a great opportunity for members of Berlin’s ethnic communities to make their cultures visible to Berliners and visitors equally. Whether it’s traditional or modern – every culture gets its chance to add their aesthetic vision to the capital‘s reputation as a vibrant and constantly changing metropolis. Being part of this traditional event has always been an unbelievable experience for both, visitors and participants.
