The largest and by far most organized community of Brazilians in Canada is in Toronto. Here are some photos I have put in my "Hot Off the Press" thread from various Brazilian parties here in this city. First, last year's Brazil Day festivities on September 7th. The show performs in New York one day, and moves to Toronto the next day:

BrazilFest, held on the Toronto Islands the year I took these pics:









Festa Junina:







Brazilian Carnaval:





and the festivals could go on and on, but that is enough to give you an idea!

One of the largest, most prestigious and DEFINITELY most glamorous charity fundraisers in Canada is the annual Brazilian Ball here in Toronto. It has raised many, many millions of dollars for charities since its inception in 1966 as the brainchild of Anna Maria de Souza (whom I had the honour of meeting a few times before she sadly passed away). La crème de la crème of Toronto society attends, for it is sometimes considered the highlight of the annual society calendar. For photos of the event, see here:

That is true, compared to the USA where there are far, far more Latinos living, but there is still a very noticeable South American, Mexican and Central American community here in Toronto. If anyone is interested, last summer I did a tour of some of the areas here like College Street and Kensington market, focusing on Latino businesses, and the results were very interesting!

Wow! Brazilian day in Toronto!
Capoeira,Carlinhos Brown(from my state Bahia),festas juninas(from my region) and a little bit of the carnaval from Rio!(There are different kinds of carnaval in Brazil).
It seems to be a very happy party,with many beautiful people
Well the brazilian community in Toronto is bigger than I could imagine,although its still small

We have churascarias, and other types of Brazilian restaurants, grocery stores to buy Brazilian foods, bars, Globo TV, etc... so you must come visit us some day and we will make you feel at home! I am super thrilled about Ivete Sangalo coming this September 6th. She is also from the Bahia, as I am sure you know! I might just die from excitement when she steps onto the stage:



I'll repost here some photos I took from the Portuguese/Brazilian area here last summer. These areas tend to have a mixture of
people inhabiting them:

"by far the bulk of the streets are Little Italy and Little Portugal, and I took a lot
of photos there to post later in my photoblog. I'll just squeeze in a few out near Ossington, where the Brazilian area sort of intersects the much larger Portuguese area.




it is apple season!!



Toronto's first gay Latino club; one that still goes strong and that I spent many a happy night at in my younger days!





I stop in at the Brazilian shop to stock up on Farofa, and get a snack:







AHH! more snacks. Mouth watering Coxinhas De Galinha, and of course orange Fanta!!! :





I'm too full to dance:











for anyone who ever wondered what Taller, Better looks like:







I was flabbergasted and thrilled that the Brazilian singing group Calcinha Preta is
coming to town, and went in to get a ticket for my partner who loves them:







Oh well, now I am here I may as well cool off

Yes of course i know Ivete and yes she is from my state Bahia!!Her last show was in Maracanã RJ there is a DVD from that show.
Calcinha Preta is a famous brazilian group although i am not their fan at all
"Brazilombian"??? whats it?! Brazil has nothing to do with Colombia
I prefer Guarana Antartica than Fanta

just their way of saying there will be a mix of Brazilian and Spanish language Latino music on that particular night. Many South Americans tend to mix when they are away from their home country (in the same way ex-pat Scottish/Irish and English tend to mingle at pubs here, too). I'm not keen on Guarana- don't like that flavour and waay too much caffeine for me! I'll stick to Brahma!

Rio is perfect for you.
The Cristo Redentor and Sugar Leaf views are FANTASTIC you memorize this forever, its a single sensation...
The city is amazing, have good beaches (Barra and Ipanema are best), a LOOOOT of nice museums and a best tourist estructure.
And if u want a relax trip, u can go to Buzios or Arraial do Cabo (Rio State, its near the capital), the best beaches in south america, and i think world xDDD.
PS: if u come to Rio, u cant visit Maracana, because the stadium is closed for 2014 games.
Only olympic stadium (the most modern in LA) is open.
Best places in Rio: Copacabana,Ipanema,Leblon,Lagoa(VERY AMAZING),Barra and Centre (The mom of brazilian history, its FANTASTIC the churches,museums,theatres,librarys and the city economical center).
And the metro is translated for english.

Yesterday's weather was not as sunny as last year, but thankfully it didn't rain during the festivities, either! Like last year, many thousands turned out for the celebration at Yonge and Dundas Square:
