The Brazilian Day Festival Atlanta (BDFA) began as a small community celebration of Brazilian Independence Day. But with the growing population of Brazilian and Latin Americans in Atlanta this event expanded to a formal public festival in 2011 attracting over 1000 participants in its first year.
Unlike other Brazilian themed events like Carnival and Brazilian Day New York that bring talent from out of the country to perform, the Brazilian Day Festival Atlanta prides itself with using community talent and resources to put on a open and free event. All are welcome and bringing family and friends is encouraged. This is truly an event 'In the Community, For the Community'.
With presenters representing various Brazilian cultural centers, churches, business and performers, Brazilian Day Festival Atlanta brings the best of the Metro-Atlanta to the Brazilian community.
We hope that you will join us this year and in the future for a fun-filled day celebrating the wonderful culture of Brazil.
The Mission of Brazilian Day Festival Atlanta Committee (BDFA) is to unify the Brazilian community and to celebrate and support it's talents.
Founded in Marietta, Georgia (a large hub of the Brazilian community) the Brazilian Day Festival Atlanta was first made possible in 2011 with the help of community leaders and partners. Lead by Muriel Ribiero and due to the hard work and dedication of local businesses and individuals the 1st Brazilian Day Festival Atlanta was able to attract over 3000 participants of the Brazilian and Latin American community. The participation has increased every year and to deal with the capacity, Brazilian Day Atlanta moved to the Mable House Amphitheater located in Mableton, Ga.
