More than 30 Samba-groups and their associated dancers from all over Europe will present their shows on three stages in "Parkteil Nord", a former venue of the German National Flower Show.
In addition to samba rythms you will also discover numerous other kinds of music which are performed in many brazilian courtyards: mellow “Forró” with its accordion, groovy samba-reggae or samba “Pagode”, just to name a few.
Moreover there will be concerts and an authentic disco atmosphere you can enjoy in the "Rundtheater Cultura" till the wee hours.
Enjoy brazilian music and joy of living!
In August 2017 it´s the time for summer, samba, music and mardi gras! Rietberg, a center of mardi gras festivities along the river Ems, will be celebrating its Second International Samba Festival from August 18th to 20th 2017. Our motto will be "Cultura do Brasil" at the Samba Festival in the park.
One highlight will be a samba contest with percussion groups, dancers and many musicians in costumes. They will transform the park into a musical suburb of Rio with their breathtaking performances on three stages.
After our motto "Roots" in 2016 we present to you in 2017:
"Pequenos Grupos" e artista solo
