What we're about

ABOUT US

We are a group of people living in the Bay Area who are passionate about everything related to Brazilian culture. This group started in 2006, in the past 4 years we've grown to over 900 members! Our group is quite diverse, and we have meetings in San Francisco, the East Bay, the South Bay and San Jose.

We welcome new members and are excited to meet new people, make new connections, and sharing common interests. We meet periodically to speak and improve our Portuguese (or for our native Portuguese-speaking friends, to improve English), to dance to Brazilian music like Samba, MPB (Popular Brazilian Music), and Forró, and to have a good time with good people. A lot of the new faces I see on the web site I have yet to see in person, so I encourage you to make an appearance and introduce yourself.

Art, Music and Brazilian Cuisine -- San Jose Event

Needs a location

Come join us and celebrate a day of Art, Music and Brazilian Cuisine on November 13th from 11AM to 4PM.

Silicon Valley attracts outstanding talent from all over the globe and that talent is no less outstanding for those in our Brazilian community. We have award winning artistic talent, respected exhibitors, and artists with a heightened creative flair. Join us in our first ever art showcase with live Brazilian sounds of duo Alex Costa and Guilherme and DJ sets by KZSU’s Global Ginga DJ Carla Leininger. Food and drink will be available at reasonable prices.

We currently have four artists and photographers who will be displaying and presenting their works. If you are involved creating art, and would like to participate, please let us know. We have space for a total of ten exhibitors. Please note that preference will be given to those who actively participate in our Meetup group.

Exhibitors are required to bring their own supplies needed to properly display and present their works. Each artist will be asked to provide a piece which will be included in a silent auction. The proceeds of which will go to “Kind Hearts for you” local non-profit. https://www.kindheartsforyou.org/

There will be a minimum donation of 5 dollars per person wishing to attend this event. Proceeds go the musicians, cleanup, and any remaining dollars then goes to the artists.

We welcome you to stay as long as you want and enjoy the art, music, food and company of our growing community!!
