Carnaval do brasil 2013 in Eindhoven.

Every year the catholic part (read: southern part) of the Netherlands celebrates Carnaval, the start of lent. In Eindhoven, carnaval kicks of each year with a parade that runs trough the city centre. This parade passes right by our new building on the Vestdijk and because this was too great an opportunity to pass up: we are hosting a big Brazilian Carnavals party outside, with a first class view of the parade! There will be a fully decorated outdoor “room” with heating and Brazilian music, from which you not only have a first class view of the parade but of all the amazing acts we have planned for you. There will be live music throughout the day, including the Brazilian percussion band Los Meandros to entertain you as well as the much loved traditional Brazilian dancers. The Hub Bar will be outside as well and will provide you with a nice drink or even a tasty snack to make this a perfect Carnaval experience.

And yes, it’s Carnaval, meaning the only rule is: any outfit goes! Naturally you can come dressed as whatever you want… a pirate, a princess, Bigbird… even your charming self… but just in case you're short on inspiration: why not just go for the bright, bold yellows and greens of Brazil?

We hope to see you all on the 9th!

Cheers, Joost

    Hi Pierre, The Meetup Center of The Hub on the Vestdijk is from our own organisation. The building is under reconstruction at the moment. The work is done by international volunteers so if you want to help out you're welcome saturdays from 10 and sunday from 12 o'clock. It is a fun way to meet new people too. At the day of the parade we can introduce you to other members of the meetup group, just ask some volunteers behind the bar. Cheers, Joost

      There will probably be a huge bar outside. They're working on the details: more information will follow. :)
