BACCF Summer Extravaganza
Created to celebrate Brazil’s gourmet cuisine at the height of South Florida’s summertime, each year a different Brazilian region is chosen for the festival’s theme: food, drinks, folk and local curiosities are showcased during an informal afternoon in late July.
BACCF Independence Gala Dinner
This traditional evening celebrates Brazil’s Independence and has become a landmark event as the largest annual social gathering of the Brazilian community in Florida.

The event, a black-tie dinner-dance, takes place at one of Miami’s five-star hotels, especially decorated for the occasion. The night features a live well-known orchestra and DJ for the entertainment, carrying songs from Bossa Nova to the oldies. It is the most happening event of the year!
