BrazilFest 2010 on Granville

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

BrazilFest comes to Granville this Saturday from 10:00am until 8:00pm on the stretch between Robson and Georgia that is pedestrian-only.


There will be guitar and full band shows, samba dancing, a soccer performance, capoeira, ballet, an art exhibit from Beth Maia, and more. The festival is entirely free and open to the public.

The goal of BrazilFest is not only to celebrate Brazilian culture through a full-day street party but to also raise awareness and funds for the community of Citrolandia, Brazil. You can read more about the campaign, sponsorship or volunteering at BrazilFest via the Vila Isabel Charitable Society.

Ever since Granville Street re-opened it’s become more of a hub than ever for entertaining crowds, watching global sporting events, or learning to salsa or swing dance. The pedestrian-only thoroughfare, at least for a few more weeks, has been hosting everything from busker showcases to an upcoming tennis tournament. Check out RediscoverGranville to learn more.
