We have postponed this decision for as long as we could, hoping for some way to make the Carnival possible in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. But with heavy hearts we now must inform you that Kulturernas Karneval 8-9 August is cancelled. There will be no "ordinary" carnival this year, we plan for 2021 instead.
But don't belive that we have given up compleatly for 2020, you never know; something might come up!
We wish you a pleasant summer.
Ina and Kattis, project managers for Kulturernas Karneval
Uppsala's warmest folk party
The Cultural Carnival is a large cultural gathering and a warm folk party that includes a thundering carnival parade and a 2-day festival filled with concerts, dance performances, workshops, theater, an extensive food and crafts market and children's activities. The carnival has taken place since 2009 and has since become one of Uppsala's biggest events and is a warmly appreciated tradition in Uppsala's cultural life. It is free entrance to the festival which over the years has given thousands of visitors wonderful cultural experiences and new impressions.
May 23-24, 2020, the Cultural Carnival will be held in the Engelska Parken. This year's theme is Lika fast Olika. Despite different conditions and backgrounds, we are all equal, equally worthwhile. We want to give everyone the opportunity to experience culture and meet new people, regardless of conditions.
Welcome to visit Uppsala's own folk party filled with love, joy and community!
You are important!
Together, we make Uppsala a place where everyone feels welcome. Whether you are a visitor, artist, exhibitor, company, association or volunteer, you are an important part of the festival.
