THE BAY AREA BRAZILIAN CLUB PRESENTED, IS PRESENTING, AND WILL PRESENT…


Que Festa Maravilhosa! This is what people say after attending our Carnaval Ball. We plan all year round so we can stage not only a beautiful, colorful and fun party, but also safe. For the last 3 years we are holding our party at the cozier RACCAPULCO NIGHTCLUB, at the heart of bairro latino in San Francisco. The venue has levels upon levels upon dance and celebration spots and corners, all filled with Brazilophiles at play. So reserve the date, February 6, 2016.

We will try to top our triumph, being recognized as the best Brazilian Carnaval Ball in the United States in 2005 and 2007 – according to the Brazilian press corps. We know what we do serves as an inspiration for celebrations all over the United States, as far away as Hawaii.

After the so called the Best Brazilian Party in Town, we proudly presented for the first time in the Bay Area, the group Showrinho, who charmed a variety of audiences in clubs and coffeehouses and schools. They spent time with students in Palo Alto, offering stories, percussion workshop, history, and music. They explained their whimsical and tuneful instruments, talked about life and art in Brazil and traveled around the Bay Area spreading their message of tradition and invention in Brazilian musical exploration.

Continuing our job trying to help the community, we held several seminars conducted by Attorney Sherry Geldelman about getting a driver’s license and suggestions for resolving problems with DMV and what to do with suspended licenses.

The Club participated in the international Conference on the Environment in San Francisco in late spring of 2012. We were delighted to be able to welcome and talk with the Prefects of Curitiba and Belem.

We organized several seminars about the new laws of Immigration in the USA. We had couple of Brazilian attorneys specialized in the subject, presenting and answering questions to the public.

For several years  we joined the mayors of San Francisco, Gavin Newson and Mr. Ed Lee in order to celebrate the San Francisco’s Brazilian Heritage Day at a flag raising at City Hall.

The Club tries to keep pace with the ever-shifting and evolving Brazilian community of the Greater Bay Area. We always welcome suggestions for future projects and programs to benefit and entertain.
