Brazilian “Carnaval” (car-nah-VOW), the biggest celebration in the world, is coming to UW-River Falls! This event will feature the phenomenal 10-piece band, Beira Mar Brasil, complete with a horn section and loads of heart-pounding hand percussion. Beira Mar Brasil, led by Robert Everest and his very special guests, has become one of the most authentic and engaging Brazilian bands in the Midwest. Join us for this high-energy free event featuring Brazilian music, food, dancing, and art.

Prior to the performance, a drumming workshop will be offered at 3 p.m. in the University Center. The workshop is free and open to the public.
