Brazilian Day NC 2018 – CANCELED

After careful consideration for the safety of our participants, vendors, volunteers, and attendees, the festival organizers have decided that due to the forecasted path of Hurricane Florence we are unfortunately forced to cancel our inaugural Brazilian Day NC Festival.
