Brazilian Day Philadelphia Festival

September 3 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join for the Brazilian Day Philadelphia Festival as part of the PECO Multicultural Series on  September 3 from 1 pm to 7 pm. FREE AND OPEN to the public.

Enjoy different genres of Brazilian music, such as Samba Reggae, Bossa Nova, Afoxe, and Brazilian Rock.

Food vendors will offer Brazilian barbeque meats and Acarajé, a specialty of Bahia, the northern region of Brazil. It consists of peeled beans or black-eyed peas that are formed into a ball, deep-fried in dendé palm oil, split in half, then stuffed with flavorful, spicy pastes made from numerous ingredients such as cashews, palm oil, and shrimp. Acarajé represents how African influences have been shaping Brazil’s cultural heritage and its culinary identity.
