Carnaval San Francisco cultivates and celebrates the vibrantly diverse Latin American and Caribbean roots of the Mission District and the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Under the guiding principle that music, dance, and art have the power to heal and unite people, we aim to create spaces of harmony and revelry in which cross-cultural relationships can grow and flourish.
Carnaval San Francisco has been an opportunity for many cultures to come together in one spirit to share their creative expression.
About Sistas Wit Style
Sistas-Wit-Style (based in Oakland, CA) was established in October 2000 with dance forms originating from Trinidad and Tobago. We are dedicated to providing youth, teens, & adults with a Caribbean cultural experience that enables them to make a positive difference through dance.
Our Carnival band Sistas-Wit-Style and Associates was started in 2004. SWS&A has taken first place in multiple Carnival parades and holds the title for Carnival Queen of 2014. Through our carnival band we provide a support system for youth and adults to fight obesity, channel their energy to something positive and “free up” themselves. We are heavily involved with spreading the Caribbean culture in our community and across the nation. We have received commendations from respected Congress members, State of California Board of Directors, and the City of Oakland for our achievements.
