Brazil Day at Toronto City Hall and Festival at Yonge-Dundas Square
Toronto will honour Brazilian Independence Day on Friday, Sept. 7, 2012 at City Hall from noon to 1pm.
My guess is that the flag-raising ceremony will be held outdoors in Nathan Phillips Square, but there’s precious little detail that I can find, even in the official Brazilian Day Canada web site.
Remember to Celebrate the “Brazilian Day Canada Concert & Street Fair” on Labour Day in 2013
My apologies for not realizing that Toronto’s Brazilian community celebrates the Brazilian Day Canada Concert & Street Fair at Yonge-Dundas Square. This annual Toronto event comes around Labour Day, in preparation for Brazil’s Day of Indedependence.
I also missed the Brazilian Art Exhibition during the previous week, displayed in the rotunda at Toronto City Hall.
I sincerely promise to try to remember Brazil Day in Toronto next year. This Brazilian Day Festival, and other annual Labour Day weekend festivals are an interesting bridge from summer events to autumn events in Toronto.
I’d covered several other activities for a Labour Day weekend in Toronto in my “The End of Summer 2012 Labour Day Weekend in Toronto“.
Preview of the Weekend after Lab0ur Day in Toronto
In the next few days, I plan to mention the upcoming Great White North Dragonboat races and the Beach Celtic Festival, two further autumn Toronto events.
Looking for More Annual Toronto Events?
Use my Squidoo lens, “The DeHaan Lens of Annual Toronto Events” to plan your other weekends. It tracks all the annual Toronto events that I find interesting. It is a “work in progress”, partly as I learn more and also as Toronto will change its celebrations from time to time.
