YES, there will be

Festa de São João!

Yes, there will be Festa de São João,

but there will be no tradução! Translation não.

Because Festa de São João is Festa de São João,

so we won’t Saint John Party you.

São João is when Brazilian people feel homesick. Again!

Because it is a truly Brazilian celebration

almost as big as carnival

that takes the country every June.

Picture a mix of Portuguese, African and indigenous festivities

translated into unique music, dance, play and dance

with a truly Brazilian soul.

Come have a bite!

 

Opa! São João will feature live music with Forró in the Dark and Mambembé and DJs Greg Caz, Victoria Mussi, Gaspar Muniz, and Tietta will be spinning the best Brazilian beats.
