History: On 7th September 1822, Prince Pedro, son of Portugal's king, stood near Brazil's Ipiranga River and made an announcement of independence. He tore the Portuguese symbol from his uniform and declared, "By my blood, by my honor, and by God: I will make Brazil free." After that Pedro became the Emperor of Brazil and forced Portuguese forces to leave Brazil. In 1889 Brazil finished its monarchy and became a republic but kept 7th September as its Independence Day. 

Taste of Brazil Dinner

The Taste of Brazil dinner is a community reunion. It happens after the celebration of  Nossa Senhora Aparecida, the Patron on Brazil.  Every year we change the theme of the event, to explore the richness and variate of the Brazilian cosine.
