Smock Alley Theatre is set to host Ireland’s inaugural Brazil showcase this weekend, promising a lively blend of cuisine, fashion, technology, and entertainment. The showcase is scheduled to kick off at 11:00 on Sunday, November 19. Entry is free but ticketed for crowd control.
Ireland and Brazil enjoy a very symbiotic relationship. Outside of EU populations Brazillians make up one of the biggest subsets of immigrants in Ireland with most of them living in Dublin. They bring a culture with them that is a joy to behold.
Organized by the Brazil-Ireland Chamber of Commerce, the event anticipates the attendance of 900 visitors eager to experience the best offerings from over 50 top-notch Brazilian businesses established in Ireland.
Char readers are in for a little treat as the showcase will have all the best bits of Brazilian food. From the fusion delights of Zaira, to the traditional Brazilian snacks served by Happy Hour Food.
Sugar Loaf Bakery, Ireland’s first traditional Brazilian bakery, and Fresh Bread House, an artisan bakery showcasing handcrafted delights, are among the featured vendors.
Tapiwow will also be present, offering delicious and nutritious gluten-free options, catering to those with gluten intolerance. Brazilian Sweets, specializing in customized cakes and brigadeiros, adds a personal and memorable touch to the culinary experience.
