Dear members, fellow Sri Lankans and friends of Sri Lanka,

After a gap of 3 years the Sri Lanka Association Berlin e.V. (SLA) will be taking part at the mega multi-cultural event “Karneval der Kulturen” attracting around 1 Million spectators. At this colourful, vibrant and cheerful event – countrywide organized cultural and social organisations display their respective cultures with music, dances and other attractions.

Sri Lanka will be represented by a newly formed dance group with new and experienced dancers from Berlin and other parts of Germany followed by a float decorated in Sri Lankan design highlighting the floral symbol of our this year’s motto “For a culture of mutual understanding, respect and solidarity”. The float will be followed by some other Sri Lankan attractions with masks and flowers and then the parade with your participation.

Hence, we request you to join this parade either in typical Sri Lankan dress like sarees and sarong etc. or in colourful batik wear. As the diversity and colourfulness of the parade also will help to promote Sri Lanka and foster our intention of helping people in Sri Lanka.

Join us, promote Sri Lanka and have fun!

Date: 28. May 2023, Parade starting at Mehringdamm/Gneisenaustrasse, 10961 Berlin at 12.30 p.m.

Kind regards,

Carnival Team
