Brazilian Festival comes to Houston

August 19, 2013 by  

The annual Brazilian Festival will take place on September 7 in Houston, Texas. The festival is managed and hosted by the Brazilian Arts Foundation and will feature live music, interactive demonstrations, food, exhibits, and educational activities. Two live bands will perform Brazilian music along with regional Brazilian dances. Approximately 3,000 people are expected to attend.

The festival is family-friendly and encourages the supervised attendance of children, so they can enjoy the many activities offered. The festival presents the Brazilian culture and focuses on the diversity of various ethnic cultures.

The Houston Arts Alliance is a major sponsor of the festival, providing support with annual grants and programs for the festival. The City of Houston is also a major participant in the event.

Print companies are frequently contracted by vendors participating in festivals and outdoor events to provide the necessary materials. Banner printing is a common request, as the banners are used in the booths to depict the companies and products offered. Banners are also placed throughout outdoor events, guiding traffic to designated areas.

Sponsor and vendor registration is open at this time. Volunteers are needed to help with the entire festival. With so many tasks and duties involved, the more volunteers the better to ensure a smooth and successful event.

The festival will begin at 2:00pm and continue until 10:00pm, taking place at the Jones Plaza on Louisiana Street. Admission is $10.00 for adults, while children under ten years of age are free.
