We’re ready for Samba Queen, are you?
If you love samba, and we know you do, then you are in for a very special treat. This year’s annual Samba Queen Contest will be bigger and more badass than ever before.
Much planning and collaboration has gone into this event. We hope you have tickets, only a few remain, sell-out is inevitable. Don’t wait until the last second, lest the fire marshal and building codes prevent you from enjoying spectacular performances from numerous amazing dancers.
So what exactly do we have in store for you?
- 20 Volunteers
- 15 Drummers
- 17 Contestants
- 5 Judges
- 1 Queen
Just like last year, you will be able to cast your vote for your favorite contestant. Each contestant has a specific color of beads available for $1 each. Each one sold counts as an audience vote.
