9th Annual Brazilian Festival comes to Fort Lauderdale

 
CARO PIEROTTO

Originally scheduled for October 17-18 at the Pompano Beach Community Park, the Brazilian Festival was forced to find a new home due to disputes with the city of Pompano Beach over safety concerns due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In a new arrangement with the City of Fort Lauderdale, the 9th Annual Brazilian Festival is now confirmed for Dec. 12 & 13, at the Huizenga Plaza, located in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The 9th Annual Brazilian Festival is “COVID-19 Safe”

A smaller, more intimate, unique event with safety first in mind has been developed. Tickets must be acquired in advance and only “online”. Attendance will be  extremely limited. Temperature checks and mandatory use of  facemasks will be required prior to entry. Sanitation stations will be available throughout the park. Exhibitors and vendors will be separated by a minimum of 10 feet with no more than 2 employees per booth. Exhibitors will follow disinfection guidelines. Sitting areas will be available nearby Food Vendors. Beach Chairs are welcomed and encouraged in front of the main stage. Social distancing will be encouraged by volunteers, and signage with disclaimers will be visible all over the park.  The festival will require all vendors to sign an agreement to abide by all Covid-19 compliance precautions.
