A Message from The President of Brazilian Day in New York 2018

Thank you for visiting our webpage. It’s great to see that you are interested in knowing more about our organization. For over 34 years the Brazilian Day festival’s main purpose has been to gather people and celebrate the music, dance, food and pride of the Brazilian community.

Today we can say that we have succeeded in gathering our friends and neighbours, not just from the New York area, but also from across the globe, to celebrate the beauty of our culture. Directly above, you will find the main links of this web site, providing options to make your Brazilian day more meaningful and unforgettable. We urge you to visit all the pages, so that you can learn about all the aspects that make Brazilian Day. We would like to thank you in advance for your participation and support in this great festival that is organized exclusively for you.

As we celebrate our 33th anniversary this year we will once again feature well known celebrity musicians and artists from Brazil. Because we want to make sure that you have fun and enjoy a great party, we are also working very hard to leave no details out, specially stressing our concerns with safety. Once again, our goal is to focus on every detail so that the Brazilian spirit will live on in your memory for years to come.

For this year’s event, we already have confirmed several major names in Brazilian music. These artists, and their show productions, will make a spectacular party on the stage of the Brazilian Day festival. New York City shows our concern in putting together such a huge event, and all this totally for you. So this is your opportunity to put on your green and yellow colors and learn about our fascinating culture.

Alongside TV Globo International, our partner in this mega-event, we are working hard so that this party continues to be among the biggest and most respected ethnical festivals of the Big Apple. The Brazilian Day staff wants to pay attention to every single detail so that you, your family, your neighbors and your friends can join us in a great moment of commemoration.

Because we are expecting such a large number of participants from other US states and other countries, we advise you to make plans well in advance so there are no last minute surprises.

We are available full time to answer any questions and provide you with any information you might need in order to participate in the event. This website provides a great amount of information aimed at helping you to become familiar with all areas of the festival. Here you can access the Brazilian Day’s calendar, the biography of the participating artists, as well as obtain information on how to purchase tickets for the VIP areas, how to be a volunteer, where to find hotels, best airfares and even job opportunities. What’s more, you can learn about the history of this event which is the world’s largest Brazilian festival outside of Brazil.

Please tell your friends about our website so they can also participate in this wonderful celebration of the Brazilian community.

We truly hope to see you there, West 46th Street (Little Brazil), on September 2st, with another incredible festival.
