THE COLOUR and culture of Brazil will fill Limerick next week with a special day to celebrate the food, music, dance, and culture of Brazil.

The inaugural Brazilian Day in Limerick will be held on Saturday, September 16, in the garden of the Hunt Museum.

The event aims to showcase the richness of Brazil’s traditions while promoting cross-cultural understanding and unity amongst Brazilian, Irish, and other cultures within Limerick’s melting pot.

The event will open with an address from Brazilian embassy representative Felipe Costi Santarosa, as well as traditional Brazilian music.

An interactive cultural exhibition will also take place on the day, giving people the chance to learn the steps of samba dancing or try out capoeira, a Brazilian martial art.

There will also be a food festival taking place allowing locals to savour Brazilian dishes such as feijoada (Brazilian black bean stew), coxinha (savoury chicken croquettes), and brigadeiro (sweet chocolate truffles).

Live music and entertainment will fill the afternoon with samba and bossa nova bands taking to the stage.

The Brazil – Ireland Chamber of Commerce (BICC) will also hold a roundtable discussion entitled ‘Brazilians Entrepreneurs of Success’ with Brazilian ambassador Marcel Biato and BICC CEO Fernanda Hermanson.

The event takes place at the Hunt Museum on Saturday September 16 from 10am to 5pm.
