BrasilFest Celebrates 23rd Years at Seattle Center! The annual BrasilFest with dancing, drumming, music, films, capoeira, traditional food, Zumba ,Cooking Demonstration, Kids Library, workshops, kids activities and exhibits. BrasilFest was created in 1999 by Brazilian immigrants Ana Paula Mendonça and Eduardo Mendonça with the mission to expose our community to Brazilian arts and traditions during the week of the Brazilian Folklore Day. This is a unique mission, as this day is not usually celebrated outside of Brazil. In Brazil, this event is an important educational tool in continuing Brazilian folkloric traditions. Our mission goes beyond keeping traditions alive; it combines traditional and contemporary Brazilian expressions.
