Welcome to the Tucson Brazilian Week!
Thank you for visiting the Tucson Brazilian Week (TBW) site.
We hope you will learn about Brazil and its music and culture. Brazilian week was created to unite all Brazilians and friends of Brazil in Tucson, through our love of the Arts.
The first Tucson Brazilian Week took place in September 2008. The event was kicked off by Mayor Bob Walkup, who proclaimed the first week of September as "Semana Brasileira".
The first year event sparkled interest about Brazilian arts and culture in Tucson and we hope to continue to disseminate the Brazilian culture for many years to come during the "Semana Brasileira". We are envision a full-fledge Festival of Arts and Culture of Brazilian in the future, where the whole city of Tucson, joins the Brazilian Community to celebrate their independence and learn about this great South American country.
To celebrate the Brazilian Independence from Portugal, the Tucson Brazilian Week Committee collaborates with the UofA, Pima Community College, the local Brazilian Community, and local restaurants to present music, dance, movies, arts and crafts exhibition and a sample of the best Brazilian culinary.
The first 2008 Tucson Brazilian Week was sponsored by Assistech and Contemporânea, with logistic support from the Mayor's Office, Pima Community College, the Cultural Exchange Council of Tucson, Hotel Congress, and the Brazilian Community of Tucson.
