Jagannath Festival Berlin and Jagannatha Shobha Yatra Berlin is an event that happens every year at the Carnival of Cultures Berlin. During this festival we have the unique opportunity to experience the wonderful culture of Jagannatha cult that originates from Jagannatha Puri, Orissa, India and was introduced to the western public in 1960ies and 70ies by AC. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder of the international Hare Krishna movement.

In Jagannatha Puri, this festival is yearly observed by millions of visitors, pilgrims and tourists with great pomp. It is a source of great joy and happiness for all since thousands of years with its simple and serene message of universal brotherhood, acceptance of each other without any boundaries that may be caused due to creed, faith or race. Due to this simple and urgent call in our modern world this Jagannatha Festival Berlin became a perfect companion of the Carnival of Cultures Berlin.
