Every year since 1996, the Carnival of Cultures celebrates cultural diversity in Berlin. Costumes, dance, music, rituals - the carnival is a great opportunity for members of Berlin's ethnic groups to make their cultures visible and for everybody else to see and celebrate cultural diversity. In the meantime, the carnival parade has grown to 5000 participants from all parts of the world. Brazilian samba, Chinese dragon dance and African drum music are offered.

Highlight of the Carnival of Cultures is the street parade on Pentecost Sunday in Kreuzberg, where thousands of dancers, musicians and artists perform and about half a million people from all over the world line the streets. Besides all this, about 300 market stalls will attract visitors with culinary temptations, arts, crafts and much more. The parade starts at noon at Yorckstraße / Großbeerenstraße and moves east on Gneisenaustraße and Hasenheide towards Hermannplatz in Neukölln.
