GUIRRE TALENTO
FROM FORTALEZA

Fortaleza will mix soccer with forró (a Brazilian dance) during the Confederations Cup, which will be held between June 15 and 30.

Off the pitches, the city will have a big São João Festival in the second half of June with dances and food typical of the Northeast. The Junina Festival will be concentrated on the shore of Iracema Beach, a tourist area on the coast. There will be nationally known bands and also regional attractions.

The shows will take place on the dates of St. John (June 23 and 24) and St. Peter (June 29) and whenever there are games both in Fortaleza and in other host cities.

The event will have stalls with delicacies, exhibitions on the Northeast and country dances. The Fortaleza Municipality's idea is to reproduce the model of the FIFA Fan Fests, as the locales of the games being played are called, that come with musical performances and sales of regional products.

It will be a test of the city's preparation for the official Fan Fest, which will be held during the 2014World Cup.

SAMBA AND ROCK

Those who do not like the Junina Festival will find venues to hear samba and rock. And leaving Fortaleza, tourists can also get to know the beaches.

During the Confederations Cup, traditional cultural programming will be held at certain locations.

2012 Country Dance Festival in Fortaleza


A good alternative is to see the sunset in the Public Garden on Fridays, to the sound of electronic music. In the same place on Saturdays, there is instrumental music and a feijoada (Brazilian bean stew) buffet (US$ 20 per kilo) for lunch with samba and chorinho (a type of Brazilian blues music).

The Public Garden is jammed in the historical center of Fortaleza and has a view of the sea. Nearby there are tourist sights, such as the Municipal Market and the Sé church.

Back on shore, on Avenida Beira Mar, there are free concerts by local artists in the Flávio Ponte Amphitheater on weekends, starting at 5:30PM.

Whoever identifies more with a rock program has to go through the Órbita Bar and Acervo Imaginário, both in the center of town. For tourists who do not want to escape the obvious, there is no lack of beaches in Fortaleza and the towns near the capital.
