Brazilian Day Festival 

When: Sun., Sept. 6, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. 2015
Price: Free
Berkeley’s annual all-day celebration of Brazil’s Independence Day, hosted by the BrasArte World Dance Center (1901 San Pablo Ave.), is probably best known for its free dance classes, drum procession, and lively musical performances. But the festival might also be the best opportunity that East Bay food lovers will have to sample a wide variety of Brazilian dishes all in one place. Vendors will be selling everything from feijoada, acai bowls, and Brazilian-style hot dogs to hard-to-find specialties, such as acarajé (black-eyed pea fritters) and moqueca (a fish stew). This year’s festival will also feature a beer garden for the first time, so visitors will be able to drink Lagunitas draft beer and throw back a few caipirinhas — Brazil’s national cocktail — while they enjoy a packed itinerary of live performances.
