The history of the Carnival:
The first Carnival of Cultures took to the streets of Berlin’s Kreuzberg in 1996, as a reaction to the racist unrests by the xenophobic attacks in Rostock. Now decades later, Europe is building new border fences under different reasons, but you can still find some welcoming culture on one side, to violence against people with different looks on the other side.
However, Berlin’s diverse communities still make the heart of the driving engine for this carnival. This carnival offers the opportunity for Berlin’s varied communities to show their respective heritage, and how they integrate together to make up the distinguished Berlin people that world wide visitors love to see, meet, and explore.
