"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!
This year we have the honor of performing Bahiana music diva Margareth Menezes on the Brazilian Day Newark stage. Margareth's engaging Axé is accompanied by the nervous band bringing Salvador's swing and energy to our stage. For her cultural and political activism, Margareth Menezes will be awarded by the hands of Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka with the "Proclamation" award, attended by Brazilian authorities.
Ahead of this party, three distinguished guests will command this year's attractions; Mileide Mihaile, Sergio Marone, and Eduardo Pazzini. In this festival, Jairzinho comes to bring his samba wheel with the non-fading classics. Taty Zatto directly from Rio de Janeiro will command the #BRDAYNWK ticks Saturday night, and at the Domigo Braga Ball in an exclusive performance! Great Little Ones - The musical with Jairzinho and Tania Khalill takes to the stage bringing the magic of children's tales in a performance full of colors, music, and dance.
This year we will also have social programs, dance classes, contests, fitness classes, awards, and a gospel show.
