San Francisco "Bay Area" Carnaval

I found information on the San Francisco "Bay Area" Carnaval quite by accident and am very surprised that they do have a multi cultural parade, featuring mas bands from Trinidad, Bolivia and Brazil! The Carnaval has been around since 1979, and you can read more about it on wikipedia. This year the festival takes place from May 24th to 25th and all the events are listed on the official website.

Check out these groups who are participating in the Carnaval:

Mas Makers

Music is Healing



Energia do Samba

Marra Reggae

Steel Band Oakland


Caribbean Roots and Culture

Samba Mundial

Sistas With Style

And photos from Carnaval 2007... quite interesting!
