The hugely popular Brazilian Day will be celebrating its 26th year on September 5th in Little Brazil (46th and 6th near Times Square). Since starting in 1984, the festival has grown tremendously, attracting over 1.5 million people in 2009!
This year's celebration sees the return of the Afro-Brazilian star Carlinhos Brown and will also include performances by Zeze Di Camargo & Luciano on the main stage at 43rd and 6th avenue. In addition to great music, the festival will also include food and a variety of Brazilian arts and crafts. The festival is free and officially starts at 11 am.
