17 May Festa Junina celebrations to kick off late next month
The Brazilian Community Council of Australia (BRACCA) is once again hosting the Arraial do BRACCA in celebration of Festa Junina next month.
The event is set to bring the best of Lusophone-speaking communities to the forefront at Inner-West Sydney, with a range of music, dance, food, cultural performances and games, to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of the harvest.
People from everywhere are welcome to attend and should expect to be taken on a tour around the world, featuring artists and food from Mozambique, Portugal, Brazil, Angola, East Timor, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe, Equatorial Guinea, Macau, and many more countries.
The organising committee BRACCA is a not-for-profit community organisation that has been recognised by the governments in both Australia and Brazil as a support for Brazilian culture.
Established in 1994, BRACCA is now managed by nine member volunteers and is currently made up of a total 4017 members, associates and partners.
