This carnaval.com, carnavalcity.com, carnivalcities.com, and a network of far too many links on an overwhelming number of pages trying to make a greater whole. Our main image server is at www.sfmission.com/cgi-bin/gallery/imageFolio.cgi and it is a visual travel guide to great people's annual events and their cities. It owes its strength to the creative commons tags of flickr.com. These fotos always link back to flickr and name and index the photographer. Thank you for sharing.
With a special emphasis on Carnaval celebrations and their wide array of associated often localized versions of music film and food with a special knod to rituals of the sacred silly and profane we explore the transformational territory of festivals around the globe and invite you to come with us!
We try to be comprehensive about listing the Carnivals or seasonal annual people's festivals of the world so if you have a flick to point us to please send us an email.
We are all about promoting Carnavals, Carnival, Carnevale, Mardi Gras or any great annual event that creatively engages the community to express themselves through the sensational power of song, dance and story to connect the past, present and future into sublime indescribable moments of ecstatic joy and fulfilled fantasy. This is theatre of the streets, found in the earliest communities as spring and fall festivals. Today it is a rare harmony of the bright, pure, and true.
Still for many the dark Carnival is where to find the stars they seek.
While Carnavals glorify the fresh and original, they are also where entire cultures preserve their rhythms, costumes, traditions and myths.
The San Francisco Mission District is where this all comes together and it is our great pleasure and privilege to be able to share this with you as we attempt to unite the SF Bay Area into ONE region under the power and mystery of the Trinity.
