BrasilFest of the Brazil Center
The mission of BRASILFEST, the annual event organized by the non-profit Brazil Center, is to expose our community to Brazilian arts and traditions during the week of the Brazilian Folklore Day (August 22). This is a unique mission, as this day is not usually celebrated outside of Brazil. In Brazil, this event is an important educational tool in continuing Brazilian folkloric traditions. Our mission goes beyond keeping traditions alive, as both traditional and contemporary Brazilian artistic expressions are of focus.
Through the annual event of BRASILFEST, Brazil Center offers the opportunity for artists and organizations to express Brazilian culture and to establish a link to the broader-based community, who will be enriched by experiencing the music, dance, film, food, children’s activities, and exhibitions.
This is a unifying venue and we hope to increase the visibility of the Brazilian cultural landscape to our community here in the Pacific Northwest.
