Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

BrasilFest Celebrates 19 Years at Seattle Center! The annual BrasilFest heats up Seattle Center with dancing, drumming, music, films, traditional food, workshops and exhibits. Seattle Center’s Festál, is a series of cultural community festivals and events designed to celebrate, preserve and share the rich traditions of the region’s diverse communities with the widest possible audience. Festál is a vital part of Seattle Center’s role in helping to build a larger community and is presented by Seattle Center Foundation. Festival History BrasilFest was created in 1999 by Brazilian immigrants Eduardo and Ana Paula 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. For more Info: www.brasilfest.org
