Brazilian Productions presents the 21st Annual San Diego Brazilian Mardi Gras Ball at San Diego Museum of Art, recognized as the most beautiful Carnival venue on the West Coast! San Diego Brazil Carnival 2013 features Carnival Bands, Capoeira, Parades, and Mardi Gras Beads. Rich in beauty and color, the Carnival presents a "Spectacular Samba Show" featuring dancers in glittering costumes adorned in sequins, beads and feathers accompanied by percussionists playing the authentic Batucada rhythms of Rio de Janeiro. Since 1993, San Diego Brazil Carnival has been the 'Official Brazilian Mardi Gras Ball' for the City of San Diego.
"Carnavalescos" dance non-stop to the pulsating rhythms of SAMBA, BATUCADA, MARCHA, AXÉ MUSIC, FREVO, SAMBA-REGGAE, and CARNAVAL ELECTRICO as they are taken on a "Carnival Tour" of Brazil from Rio to Bahia with a stop in Recife!
If you have the impression that the whole world's a carnival, nowhere is that more true than San Diego, California! The city also closes down the streets of Gaslamp Quarter for a mega Mardi Gras carnival celebration.
