Our History

History of San Diego Brazilian Productions

Brazilian Productions aka Carnaval Mardi Gras Productions, producers of San Diego Brazil Carnaval Mardi Gras, has been actively producing and promoting Brazilian Carnaval, Mardi Gras Events and Shows  since 1988. We have produced and promoted shows with such Brazilian artists as OLODUM, Moraes Moreira, Renni Flores, from OBA OBA, Daniela Mercury, Ed Motta, Djambi, Marisa Monte, Ivan Lin, RACIONAIS MCs and Gilberto Gil.  We also coordinate and organize the Carnaval Mardi Gras Parades for San Diego Street Scene, the largest food and music festival on the West Coast.

San Diego Brazil Carnaval is one of the largest most authentic Carnaval Event in California.  It brings together San Diego’s Brazilian community and the rest of San Diego to celebrate the most important party of the year.    Through out the years, San Diego Carnaval Mardi Gras has served as a vehicle to bring people together and build a cultural bridge between Brazil and the United States.

We function as Entertainment Consultants and provide Brazilian, Latin, African, Reggae, Caribbean, Jazz, Flamenco and Caribbean artists for Conventions, Parades, Carnavals, Street Fairs, Weddings, and Private Parties...Contact Us  when it comes time to plan that next special event.
