Brazilica 10th Annual Carnival Queen Competition to return to Albert Dock, Liverpool!
Photographs by Patrick Trollope

BRAZILICA is delighted to announce that its 10th Annual Carnival Queen Competition will be returning to PANAM on Liverpool's Albert Dock, this July!

2016 saw the Carnival Queen competitors set PANAM alight with their fiery sambas, but this year (2017) the flames will be hotter than ever as a whole host of Brazilian dancers take to the venue, from 9pm, on Friday, 14 July 2017, to perform their most glittering routines in stunning costumes of only the brightest colours.

There can be only 1 winner and with a team of judges facing the task of narrowing down the many carnival hopefuls to just 1 Queen, you can rest assured that only the very best will take home the crown.

Last year's winner Paris will pass her carnival crown onto the Queen of 2017 whose night will have only just begun as she prepares to carry the celebrations deep into the night.  The deserving winner will find herself at the very forefront of the extravagant event that is the night time Carnival Parade. The parade will give festival goers and passersby an opportunity to taste the real flavours of Brazil with bands from across the UK and overseas performing in the streets and lighting up Liverpool with a blaze of Brazilian samba.

Entry is free and the Carnival Queen Competition not only the perfect way to get into the spirit for the rest of the Brazilica Festival, but an explosive start to a weekend which brings the whole City to life with colour, music and samba rhythms. Brazilica runs from 14 July to 16 July 2017.  So get yourself down to the famous Albert Dock and experience an authentic Brazilian vibe here in our very own city and see for yourself who takes crowning glory in this year's Carnival Queen Competition.
