Parade in SF Carnaval 2023
with Ginga Brasil!
Join us for a very special parade honoring our late Founder and Director Conceicao Damasceno -- recreating past looks from her carnaval career as well as telling stories from her personal life.
Parade Day ~ Sunday, May 28
REHEARSALS HAPPENING NOW!
Ginga Brasil is one of the earliest SF Carnaval Comparsas and has been parading consistently for 32 years! Bloco Ginga Brasil began as a vision from our founder Conceicao Damasceno to bring the Carnaval rhythms and dances of her native Bahia, Brasil to the Bay Area. From bringing over 10 members of the original bloco afro Ile Aiye in the year 2000 to adding with responsibility and love the traditions of Rio as well in later years, Ginga Brasil is committed to an authentic Brazilian experience- including the warmth and welcoming embrace of our community members and leadership!
