Carnaval Brasilerio Evening Show

The most attended and longest-running annual Brazilian event in the Twin Cities celebrates its 17th annual Carnaval Brasileiro!

Over 50 singers, drummers, samba dancers, capoeiristas (Brazilian martial artists) and artisans will transform The Cedar into an authentically festive Brazilian cultural experience! Guitarist/vocalist Robert Everest and his ten-piece group Beira Mar Brasil will host the very unique Carnaval Brasileiro Masquerade Ball. Everest is a world music expert and leads a band steeped in the sounds of Brazil — Samba, Axé, Frevo, Baião, and other dance-inducing styles from throughout the country.
