Festa Junina: Party Inspired By Brazil's World-Famous Carnival
After Brazil's world-famous Carnival, Festa Junina is the second most important popular celebration in Brazilian culture. Brazilian Nites, the largest Brazilian production company in the West Coast, and educators from Brazilian Play and Learn, are teaming up to bring the most authentic Festa Junina to Hide Away Cafe Ranch in Sylmar. Mariana Leite and Bia Borinn, educators from Brazilian Play and Learn, will be in charge of activities such as arts and crafts, classic outdoor games and Quadrilha, a fun traditional folk dance for the whole family. Attractions also include a show of Marcus Brian, a popular Sertanejo (Brazilian folk music) singer known for his crunching guitars and emotional vocals. DJ Yukicito will be spinning the best of traditional forró, a musical amalgam that makes everyone get up and move. Those attending will be treated to typical Brazilian food from a variety of vendors, which includes barbecue skewer and different dishes such as Pamonha (sweet corn cake) and Canjica (sweet maize porridge). Attendees are encouraged to dress up like farmers to enjoy and dance the Quadrilha as they were in Brazil's countryside.
