MAY 31 - JUNE 3, 2018

In 2018, for the first time ever, members of the Forró New York community put together a festival! It was a cultural celebration with much music and dance! The New York Forró Festival brought together dancers, musicians and forró enthusiasts for 4 nights of live music and 3 days of dance classes (from beginner to advanced), where participants could socialize and dance to the sound of renowned musicians.
