Brazilian Beat Festival in Boca Raton is an annual celebration of Brazilian food, dance, martial arts, music and more!  Spice up your life a little for this FREE event that will be fun for the entire family.  Come enjoy a Zumba showcase, Capoeira dancers, Samba drums, Brazilian food and cocktails, street dancing and more. Plus, just like last year, the SambaLá Samba School will perform a mesmerizing Rio-style parade with over 60 drummers, dancers and beautiful costumes - which is not to be missed!

Headlining this year's event are Alma Tropicalia and Batuke Samba Funk. Alma Tropicalia is a Washington, DC-based rock band that reimagines the psych-samba sounds of 60s tropicália music from Brazil, a mind-bending mix of tropical rhythms, soulful funk grooves and day-glo psychedelia that has quickly earned the group ecstatic reviews and packed performances across the region. Batuke Samba Funk is a high energy Brazilian band that mixes Brazilian rhythms such as Funk from the 70's, Afro Samba, Brazilian Big Band, Batucada, Soul, and R&B.

Free parking is available at City Hall (201 W Palmetto Park Road), the old and new Downtown Libraries (140 and 400 NW Boca Raton Blvd) as well as other on-street spaces throughout downtown, with paid parking available at the City lot on NE 2nd Street and Federal Highway.
