There’s no doubt Brazil’s a large place. The South American country is made up of one federal district and 26 states. Each of these areas has a history, culture, and landscape all its own. Now imagine rolling all of this culture and heritage into one ball. What you get is the Brazilian festival. Brazilian cultural festivals, which take place in cities across the United States, range from Carnaval Brasileiro in Austin, Texas, to New York City’s Brazilian Day New York. The festivals feature everything from traditional dancing and music, to food and art. Various film festivals showcase Brazilian culture on the big screen. Of course, Brazil is still the nerve center for Brazilian festivals, such as Rio Réveillon in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil—a righteous way to ring in the New Year while in Brazil.
