11th - 19th July, Various City Centre Locations

Brazilica, the UK's largest Samba Carnival event, passes through the city's streets on the evening of Saturday 19th July.  

This stunning Rio de Janiero style spectacle is sure to be the undoubted highlight of the festival which will take place across Liverpool from Friday 11th- Saturday 19th July.  Hundreds of performers will take part in the Rio-style carnival weaving it's way through the city centre with glittering costumes, floats and irresistable samba.  Brazilian drummers will join the samba dancers and floats on their journey through the city at 8pm.  

The festival also showcases Brazilian bands at the main stage in Williamson Square from midday to 11pm including acts like internationally acclaimed award winners Da Lata.  Live music, performances, exhibitions, films and workshops will be running throughout the week - something for all the family and a taste of Brazil right here in Liverpool.
