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 2019 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!
To honor our tenth anniversary, we are welcoming five international samba experts to Salt Lake City, to teach a full weekend of workshops! Workshops run Friday January 25, Saturday January 26, and Sunday January 27. Just $75 for eight classes!Dancers, register for the workshops here
