Members of Pittsburgh’s Brazilian community will host a celebration of their country’s music, food and culture on Oct. 4 from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Rose Barn in North Park.

The Sixth Annual Brazilian Day event will feature traditional foods including feijoada, brigadeiro and caipirinha prepared by Casa Brasil and other vendors.

Music will be provided by artists including Kenia, Lilly Abreu and Timbeleza. There also will be a “capoeira” performance, which is a combination of dance and mixed martial arts. There also will be a variety of games and activities for kids.

“Every year for the past six years, the Brazilian community has put together a Brazilian Day event where there is music, food, entertainment and more to celebrate Brazilian culture and bring the Pittsburgh community together,” said Monica Snyder, a North Hills resident and Chatham University student who is helping to organize this year’s event.

The celebration will include raffle baskets with the proceeds going to Project Amazonas, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and serving the people and forest of the Amazon Rainforest.

Tickets cost $15 per person or $25, which includes a traditional Brazilian black bean stew called feijoada prepared by the Casa Brasil restaurant.

Family tickets — two adults and two children 13 or younger — cost $30 or $60 with feijoada.

More information and tickets are available online.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
