Each year the Consulate General of Brazil in Miami celebrates Brazil's cultural presence in Florida with amazing events. The Consulate's cultural season in Florida – “A Journey Through Brazilian Experiences” – brings together Visual Arts, Architecture, Cinema, Dance, Education, Fashion, Gastronomy, History, Literature, Music, Sports, Photography, Theater and Tourism to underscore the influence of Brazilian culture in the Sunshine State.
The Brazilian community is one of the most active in Florida, contributing in a very positive way to the development of the State. Moreover, Florida is the biggest trading partner of Brazil in the United States, a main recipient of Brazilian foreign investment, and one of the preferred international tourist destinations for Brazilians.
The events take place in a number of different cities, like Miami, Miami Beach, Doral, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Orlando, Tampa, Gainesville and Pompano Beach. The season integrates several initiatives to promote Brazil’s culture and the Portuguese language.
