A music group participates in the parade for the Carnival of Cultures in 2019.

The big street festival and the parade had already been canceled in January - as a replacement there were to be several small events on August 15. These will also now not take place, as the organizers announced on July 22, 2021. "The reasons lie in the rising incidences and the increasing infection rate with the virus mutant Delta. Against this background, our concept is not feasible." Normally, hundreds of thousands of people with splendid costumes celebrate the Carnival of Cultures every year, which has existed since 1996. Last year, the festival was already cancelled due to the pandemic.
