Welcome to a unique platform for promoting unity, tolerance and equality. Soaked In Soca host events and initiatives that celebrate the true essence of Caribbean carnival culture. Our vision is to connect people and to enrich Germany’s culturally diverse landscape. In so doing, we hope to bring about positive change in our society.
Operating out of our home-base in Cologne, Germany – arguably, the carnival capital of Europe – we've hosted numerous real, on location and online events. In fact, one of our main goals is to fuse these two distant, but not so different carnivals with one another. It's possible! We've witnessed it at our events: people of different races, backgrounds and nationalities learning from each other, forming lasting bonds, celebrating as one.
This is the spirit of carnival! This is the spirit that we need more of in our communities. This is the spirit that, with your help, will continue to spread as far and as wide as possible.
Caribbean music and carnival culture continues to break down barriers across Europe. For as long as it takes, we will strive to ensure that all cultural aspects imported from the Caribbean be authentically and respectfully represented.
It’s a beautiful journey we’re on and far from finished.
