This grand event, Brazilian Day in New York, is celebrating its 32nd anniversary. Brazilian Day in New York is always on the Sunday before Labor Day. So this year (2016) it’s on Sunday, Septmber 4th.
This celebration of the Brazilian Culture takes place in the heart of Little Brazil, West 46th. Street. Every year Brazilian Day in New York takes over 25 blocks, all surrounding Little Brazil.
The festival started with the purpose of celebrating Brazilís Independence Day here in New York. That small celebration started in 1984 by Joao DeMatos, the founder of Brazilian Day in New York. The first few festivals attracted a couple hundred people. But boy has it grown since then! It now attracts over 1.5 million. This is according to official information from NYPD for Brazilian Day 2013.
Brazilians from far and wide get together from different parts of the world, many coming from Brazil just to attend the festival. They show their pride and love for their culture. A culture that is so rich in life, music, good food, good friends and good times! They have a chance, for one day, to truly celebrate Brazil while being so far away from home. One day to color New York City Green and Yellow with Brazilian Pride!! We hope to see you there!!
