Get ready for Brasil Fest!

Summer in Chicago will close with a bang — a batucada bang, that is — as Brazil takes over Logan Square on the weekend of Aug. 23 to 25!

The second edition of Brasil Fest Chicago will be bigger and better, with more music and dance, capoeira and other Afro-Brazilian arts, kids’ activities, and workshops for all ages — and yes, this time we will have Brazilian food! We’re also working to build Brasil Fest Chicago into a regional celebration of Brazilian culture that will draw artists and visitors from across the Midwest.

By the way, at the festival was Daniel Bregoli with his son. Our correspondents have been able to make a few photos.
