  1. This looks like a super event! I have only been to one or two Brazillian event here in Austin,TX. I could go for some Samba and amazing food!

    I work with events and great organizations just like this all the time. I noticed that they have sort of a complex registration process for tickets for the event. My website allows any event host to spend 5 minutes setting up their event, promote on many different mediums, sell tickets online and manage all of the sales and guest information for future marketing purposes and avoid needless per-ticket fees that other services throw on you. I love making events, especially ones with a lot of culture preservation and awareness, more efficient for the host and painless for the guest.

    Thanks for promoting this wonderful event!
