Festival 2012 to 2021 – 10 Years on Multicultural Diversity.
Broward has the largest concentration of Brazilians in South Florida. Former Mayor and Broward Commissioner Lamar Fisher, on behalf of the city and event organizers, accepted the Brazilian Press Award for 2013’s Best Brazilian Festival in the US. Today, the Annual Brazilian Festival is the largest in the Southeast Coast of the United States.
The Annual Brazilian Festival has already proven to be the best and largest representation of the Brazilian Art, Culture and Cuisine in South Florida for 9 consecutive years. The perception was built, and the intention to integrate Brazil with local US culture is already accomplished. The largest Brazilian Event of South Florida, is nonprofit, and a community sponsored festival with the potential to become one of the largest in the US. The 10th Anniversary of the Festival will follow the same successful formula of prior editions but will be adding to the mix revolutionary and trendsetting Ideas.
Environmental Awareness: The Annual Brazilian Festival builds awareness about Environmental protection and how recycling can have a positive effect to avoid Global Warming. Set designs and event scenography are always built mainly with recycled materials. Portable Bars and Vip Area will become innovative showrooms with pioneering ideas of how to use recycled items to design sets and spaces. These new ideas and trends while surprising and trailblazing, portray and depict the inspiration that we need to find solutions that could protect our environment, and proactively act to prevent global warming.
