Brazilian Day Fair and Parade
This event bills itself as the largest Brazilian Festival on the West Coast. Over 150 vendors will have activities, food, and entertainment including a kids’ zone with face painting and inflatables and a beer garden for the adults. The main stage presents nonstop Brazilian music and dance ensembles throughout the day. The highlight of the fair is the parade at 3 p.m., inspired by the carnival parades of Brazil. The parade path will move around the perimeter of the festival with floats, costumes, and lots of noise.
To commemorate ten years of Brazilian Day San Diego, the theme for the 2017 parade is Peace, Love, Community, and Diversity. Brought to you by Brazilian Institute for Arts and Culture, a local non-profit promoting Brazilian dance, music, literature, folklore, capoeira, and the Portuguese language.
