Brasil Fest Chicago is for everyone. It's for Brazilians and Anglo-Brazilians living in the Midwest, their children and their families. It's for people of all backgrounds who are already tuned into Brazilian culture. And it's also for people who know next to nothing about Brazil and are curious to learn more about this country they've been hearing so much about lately the country that now boasts the world's sixth largest economy and that will be hosting both the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.
Now in its third year, Brasil Fest Chicago is organized by a committee comprised of Brazilian professionals, artists and community leaders. Our goal is to present an authentically Brazilian experience that presents the country's language, lifestyle and ethnic diversity in a fun way.
How authentic? It's Brasil Fest with an "S" rather than "z" because that's how it's spelled in Portuguese!
