Toronto - The Brazilian way of life and culture was put on display at the second annual Brazil Day Canada Festival at the Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto. The event attracted tens of thousands of visitors last year.
At one end of the city of Toronto, you have the Hispanic Fiesta 2010. At the other end of the city, you have the Ashkenaz Festival 2010. In the middle, the second annual Brazil Day Canada Festival took place at the Yonge-Dundas Square.
The event is only in its second year, but last year’s festivities attracted tens of thousands. One could not even walk on the sidewalk of the square because it was filled to maximum capacity as Brazilian music was played and the visitors danced.
“Always taking place on Canada’s Labour Day, this year the event features some of the biggest Brazilian starts and local Brazilian performers and the best talent from the local community,” said Executive Producer, Tania Nuttall. “With this all-star line-up, Brazilian Day Canada is going to leave everyone on their feet moving to the samba beat.”

The purpose of the celebration is to “showcase” the variety of Brazilian cuisine, music, art and dance performances to the “global community.”
The very first Brazil Day Festival took place in New York City in 1984 and still takes place. It has become one of the largest celebrations in the world as it covers 25 blocks and attracts more than 1.5 million people from around the world.
It is now broadcasted in cities places such as Miami, Japan, England, Angola and others.
