Brazilica returns to Liverpool city centre this summer


Brazilica returns to the streets of Liverpool this summer for the first time in three years.

A spectacular and colourful carnival parade – Britain’s biggest Brazilian Carnival - will wend its way through the city centre on Saturday, August 6.

The 2022 event, organised by Liverpool Carnival Company, is the twelfth edition of the Brazil-style festival, and the parade will feature samba bands from across the world along with Liverpool Samba School, Batala Mersey, Katumba and Wirral Samba Drummers.

Costumes and float decorations are currently being created in the former Edge Hill Library in Lodge Lane.

The family-friendly parade is due to start at the Cambridge Pub in Mulberry Street at 7.30pm and make its way through Abercromby Square and along Hope Street, Hardman Street, Bold Street and Church Street, finishing in Williamson Square.

An afterparty will be held at District in the Baltic Triangle.

Maeve Morris, who co-founded Brazilica with husband Roger, said: "Having missed the last two years of Brazilica, we're really excited to be bringing the carnival parade back to the streets of Liverpool. Lots of samba bands say that this is their favourite festival, because people always come out and show their appreciation.

“The atmosphere is like nothing else.
