3rd Annual Brazilian Beat in Boca Raton (Sept. 6)

Come celebrate the Brazilian Independence Day at Sanborn Square in Boca Raton! 

The City of Boca Raton presents Downtown Boca’s Brazilian Beat, designated as one of South Florida’s official annual Brazilian Independence Day Celebrations by the Consulate General of Brazil in Miami, on Saturday, September 6 at 6 p.m. in Sanborn Square, 72 North Federal Highway (one block north of Palmetto Park Road). 

The event is FREE and open to the public.

Promising to be a spirited evening, Brazilian Beat will feature live music, street entertainment including a Zumba showcase, Capoeira dancers, carnival dancers, samba drummers and authentic Brazilian food.   

Headlining Brazilian Beat will be one of Brazil’s own music treasures, BossaCucaNova, known for their irresistible fusion of the electro-bossa nova with the danceable, sultry samba synonymous with the culture of the country.  This year marks the band’s 15th anniversary with founding members Marcio Menescal (son of bossa nova pioneer Roberto Menescal), DJ Marcelinho DaLua and producer/sound engineer Alex Moreira.  Percussionist Dado Brother and vocalist Cris Delanno have been with the band for more than a decade.

Free parking for Brazilian Beat is available at City Hall (201 West Palmetto Park Road), the Downtown Library (400 Northwest Boca Raton Boulevard), and other locations downtown where event signage is featured. 

Sponsors include JM Lexus, Banco do Brasil and WPTV-TV. 

Visitors are encouraged to “come early, stay late…where something for everyone awaits.”
