The Kobe Festival is one of the city’s most famous: an international parade with stage performances, markets, musical bands, and plenty of food stalls. The event is held over two-days, but it is the main parade on the final day for which the crowds come: 70 groups of up to 200 people with costumes and floats.

The festival dates back to 1971 and the main parade is typically held on the third Sunday of May each year. While not a Brazilian celebration, the Copa Samba team often prove to be the main (and most photographed) attraction.
