We love our sponsors and supporters! They make our festival possible.

Respected Sponsors

Tucanos Brazilian Grill

Proud sponsor of The Utah Brazilian Festival and Viva Brazil Cultural Center. Tucanos has been our main sponsor and major supporter for several years.

Come to Tucanos Brazilian Grill, where a dining experience rich in flavor and heritage awaits you. The Brazilian tradition of grilling, or CHURRASCO (shoe-HAS-ko), is a fusion of South American and European cultures. From its birth in the Pampas or grasslands of Brazil to the sparkling beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Tucanos now extends this festive tradition to you.

Lumos Language School

Lumos Language School and course are officially certified and accredited with the highest possible licenses and accreditations for English schools.

ZAP Zoo Arts and Parks

The mission of the Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) Program is to enhance Salt Lake County resident and visitor experiences through art, cultural, and recreational offerings. The Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) Program was voted on and passed by Salt Lake County residents in 1996, awarding its first grants in 1997. Every 10 years, the ZAP Program is placed on the ballot for County residents to vote for the program's renewal. The percentage of supporting voters continues to increase with each renewal cycle due to the successful reach and impact of the ZAP Program and the organizations it funds. For each purchase in Salt Lake County that includes sales tax, one (1) penny of every $10 spent goes to providing grants to over 200 nonprofit organizations in the community.

Pepsi Beverages Company

Among the many flavors produced and/or distributed by Admiral Beverage and affiliated companies are: Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Diet Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, 7UP, A&W Root Beer, leading Energy Brands, Coors Miller brands and many more.


As the first company to introduce linen and uniform rental services to the world in 1889, Alsco not only pioneered an industry, we created industry standards. Alsco also invented the continuous towel dispenser, pioneered the use of garment lockers, and continues to lead in the laundering and delivery of ready-to-wear uniforms for virtually every type of application imaginable.

Arts and Museums

Our mission is to connect people and communities of Utah through Arts and Museums.  Utah Arts & Museums seeks to advance the quality of life for all through arts experiences and cultural opportunities. The Division provides more than 500 outreach services, including arts education, professional development, exhibitions, community organizations, community centers, performing groups, museums, and individuals across Utah.  Utah Arts & Museums is the primary agency in Utah that distributes state and federal funds to stimulate and encourage growth in the arts and creative industries. The funds are appropriated directly for arts and museums by both the Utah State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Salt Lake City Corporation

The Arts, Culture, and Events (ACE) Fund was established to provide funding to support community events in Salt Lake City. The fund is designed to support both larger events that provide significant economic and/or cultural contributions to the community and smaller community events that, due to their nature and scope, are unable to generate the needed revenue to cover presentation costs.
