"The Brazilian Day Newark is a joyful celebration of all Brazilian things."
Each year we gather in Newark to celebrate and honor the heritage in recognition of the achievements of our community in Brazil and around the world. There is something magical about Brazilian music and culture that cannot be described in words, and you must experience it!
In 2022, we had the honor of a performance from Bahiana music diva Margareth Menezes on the Brazilian Day Newark stage. Margareth's engaging show was accompanied by the band bringing Salvador's swing and energy to our stage. For her cultural and political activism, Margareth Menezes was awarded by Mayor Ras J. Baraka with the "Proclamation" award.
