One of the reasons Brazil is so famous in the world is because of the great popular festivals that are held throughout the year all over the country. Ring in the new year along the sea. Dance Samba in the streets. Follow itinerant concerts behind trucks with giant loudspeakers (trio elétrico). “Raise some dust” by dancing the forró. Play and have fun with the bumba meu boi. To always be close to the Brazilian festivals it’s better to reserve your vacation in advance. The Bed & Breakfast Brasil network has listed Bed & Breakfasts, apartments and pousadas all over Brazil on its BBrasil.com website!
Celebrate all year long with the typical characteristics of every region in the country. The Brazilian festivals provide an idea of the complexity and diversity of the country’s culture. Even the faith of Brazilians takes on continental proportions and celebrations attract large masses around divinities or rituals of exotic origin. The principle events in the country demonstrate a modernity and vigor of flavors produced in the music, plastic arts, literature, fashion, cinema, theater and dance.
The Brazilian calendar of cultural events is plentiful with festivities and events held in small provincial towns as well as in the large metropolises. The festivals represent the joyous character, creativity and faith of Brazilians: from the New Year’s Eve celebrations in Rio de Janeiro or the Carnival in various localities to the Parintins Festival in the Amazon forest and the Festas Juninas in the northeast or large processions like the Círio de Nazaré a Belém and festivals that represent the heritage of immigrant communities like the Blumenau Oktoberfest or the traditional festivities of Italian immigrants during the Brás di São Paulo.
