The Parintins Folk Festival, the largest cultural festival of the northern region of Brazil, is held over 3 days during the last week in June. The ‘Boi-Bumbas’ (people dressed in outlandish costumes) dance to the beat of the drums and each team is judged on its music, dance performances and costumes. 

Experience a taste of Amazonian folklore during this exclusive show of the Boi-Bumba celebration. The people of Parintins exude a vibrant glow of beauty, happiness and pride in their culture as they carry on part of their rich tradition, which is rooted in a 19th century fable. The dancers and the contagious rhythm of the ‘Boi-Bumba’ music are sure to delight you.  A local caipirinha beverage will be served during the show.

At the conclusion of the performance, you’ll have the opportunity to see the lavishly-designed costumes before the return walk to the pier.
