Brazil has a large number of celebrations that have become very popular internationally. The most iconic event is the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro, in which there is plenty of color, music, parades where different schools wear traditional costumes, competitions and dances.
Although they have a variety of pagan festivals, many events are religious in nature. The popular festival of Sâo Jôao is an example of this. Almost a month of celebrations are lived intensely in the northeast of the country. Also, due to the Portuguese colonization and immigration, Brazil also has festivities with European and African influences such as the Cavalhadas, where Moors and Christians confront each other.
Despite this, the country has also managed to preserve many indigenous festivals such as the Tiradentes or Folk Festival of Parintins.
