– Saturday, February 3rd at Pierpont Place.
– Doors open at 8:00 p.m. with live Brazilian music.

The Samba Queen Contest is no ordinary event.
Guests will enjoy dancing to live music at Samba Queen – it’s a lively, energetic night on the town, supporting Salt Lake’s art community. Dancers entertain the crowd as they compete for the title of 2018 Rainha Do Samba (Queen Of Samba) adorned in traditional Brazilian Carnival costumes of bright colors, feathers, sparkling bikinis and sky-high heels. Each contestant gets a chance to perform a two-minute solo with a live Brazilian drum line, and local celebrity judges and audience voting determine the winner!
Tickets to Samba Queen are $15 until January 5, 2018! January 6-February 2 tickets are $20, and $25 at the door the night of the event. VIP tables are available for $200. VIP tables seat four and come with cocktail service to your table, a great view of the stage, and VIP treatment.
This year we welcome U.S. National Samba Queen of 2017, Jonia McClenney from Recife, Brazil (by way of L.A.)! Jonia will be joining us as a performer and guest judge for the 2018 Samba Queen Contest, and she will be teaching three Samba workshops the week of the event. Visit sambafogo.com for more info.
