    It’s time to celebrate 18 years of the largest and most extravagant Brazilian Carnaval on the West Coast, featuring Rio samba star, Neguinho da Beija-Flor.

    First time touring in the U.S., Neguinho is considered one of the most iconic Carnaval performers of Brazil. Since 1976, he has been affiliated with the 12-times parade winner, Beija-Flor de Nilópoles, one of the largest samba schools of Rio de Janeiro. 

    Accompanied by the energetic musicians of Grupo Resenha - CA, a samba band based in California, and by the stunning passistas of L.A. Samba Dancers, Neguinho da Beija-Flor is sure to bring the true Carnaval spirit to Angelenos of all ages. Plus Nei Rios & BatukAxé and our official MC Leo from Rio! 

    Dedicated to the whole family, the party starts with kid’s activities organized by Brazilian Play and Learn, specialized in teaching Portuguese and the Brazilian culture to kids and teens by using storytelling, traditional games, dance, songs, and arts and crafts. Costumes are encouraged.

    Led by LA’s community drumming group, Samba Da Mudança, attendees are also invited to join high-energy drum circles sponsored by Remo Inc.. 

    Attractions also include DJ Potira with an eclectic set on different genres of Brazilian music. The celebration continues with authentic Brazilian food and drinks, and a marketplace at the venue’s patio.
