Here's some news to cheer you up, Melbourne: the Queen Vic Market market is bringing back its epic Brazilian festival in February.
This thing launched late last year, and it was actually the city’s first ever dedicated Brazilian festival—surely a massive city council oversight (lift your samba game, Robert Doyle). It’s called VIVA Brazil, and it’ll be running at Queen Vic over the weekend of 24-25 February.
The line-up is still pretty hush hush, but you can expect the usual belly-shaking mix of colourful feathers, samba dancers and Brazilian drummers, capoeira dance battles and epic DJ beats. Last year they also stacked the line-up with some pretty tasty food trucks: think Brazilian BBQ from Cope Food Truck and Copacabana International, plus a bunch of craft stalls and boutique vendors.
Now, where did we put our sequined headdress...swear it was around here somewhere.
Where: Queen Victoria Market
When: 10am – 3pm Saturday 24 February, 10am – 4pm Sunday 25 February
