We will be launching our new website in October of 2013 to give you plenty of time to get involved. Stay tuned.

Dear friends of Brazil Day DC. Thank you for your outpouring of support since our festival’s debut in 2011. It’s thanks to you that Brazil Day DC has been such a success and continues to grown by leaps and bounds. Let’s face it - we like having a Brazilian festival of our own! Many of us predict that our very own, Brazil Day DC, will double in size by 2014. We’ve already out-grown our previous home – The Yards Park. With this impressive growth comes bigger needs – more leaders, volunteers, sponsors and vendors, and a much larger venue. In order to better handle this positive growth, we have decided to cancel the festival of 2013 and focus our time and resources on what’s to come in 2014… Sad news for many of us who look forward to this annual festivity, but brace yourself, friends, for 2014 will bring us a sizzling Brazil Day DC festival... Bigger and better, fantastic new location, more vendors from all over the east coast, great performances and more… The best is yet to come.

2011 REVIEWS

A special thanks to a dedicated team of caring Brazilian citizens and American friends who took on a giant challenge of organizing Brazil Day DC 2011 and created a new tradition for our community. An amazing feat for sure… This team, “the organizers”, had only 90 days to create a festival of this size – one that would bring the Brazilian-American community together to celebrate the vibrant Brazilian culture… In my opinion, we’ve all succeeded, as organizers and as a community who demonstrated a lot of faith by showing up in the droves on a cold October Sunday. 2012 will for sure be warmer, bigger and better than ever!

Of course, can’t pass up the opportunity to highlight some of the most gifted performers in the DC Metro area who lit up the stage with their performances – Zezeh Brazil and her talented dancers, Batala, Elim and Dani Cortaza, Carlos Munhoz, Batuque, Beleza, Maracatu, Samba Trovao, Carla Quick, Bravenoise, Capoeira DC, Jinga Dance and finally the ABRACE Children's choir who opened the festivities with the Brazilian national anthem. Who would you like to see back in 2012?

Brazil Day DC 2012 will be on Sunday, September 9, 2012 at the Yards Park, DC. Save the date!

The 2012 website is nearly finished… Launching in mid-February.

UPDATE: Brazil Day DC 2011 Inaugural Festival was a smashing hit! Despite the cold weather, Brazilians and lovers of Brazilian culture alike showed up in an amazing display of support and anticipation for what is to become one of most memorable traditions on Washington DC.

The performances were sensational! If you were there, you will agree that our talented performers filled the open-air pavilion with such energy that left the crowd begging for more. Speaking of begging for more, never under-estimate a Brazilians’ love of his Brazilian comfort foods. Among the delicious foods served throughout the day were feijoada, churrasquinho, farofa, salgadinhos, guarana and so much more… These traditional comfort foods literally left the crown begging for more.

It is safe to say that this inaugural festival was the sign of what’s to come in 2012 and following years. Get ready for a BIGGER, WARMER and BETTER Brazil Day DC, coming in early September of 2012! We will be ready for you!

WEATHER UPDATE: Brazil Day DC is ON, RAIN OR SHINE! All performances and vendors are located under a large covered pavilion.
