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

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.

Viva Brasil Cultural Center

Viva Brazil Cultural Center is a non-profit organization, with 501(c)3 status, dedicated to educate the public about Brazilian arts, tradition, culture and language. It also facilitates communication and cooperation among the Brazilian community within and outside the state of Utah. Its main goal is to provide educational assistance through a Scholarship Program to persons of Brazilian descent to assist in furthering their education and employment opportunities.

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.

Zoo Arts and Parks (ZAP)

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.

Art Works

Established by Congress in 1965, the NEA is the independent federal agency whose funding and support gives Americans the opportunity to participate in the arts, exercise their imaginations, and develop their creative capacities. Through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector, the NEA supports arts learning, affirms and celebrates America’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, and extends its work to promote equal access to the arts in every community across America. Visit arts.gov to learn more about NEA.

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.

Martin's Collision Repair

Before Martins Collision Repair, Sergio Martins worked for a major insurance company and Ori Martins worked for an auto body repair shop. They both had a dream of opening their own auto repair shop that would cater to families and auto insurance companies. In November of 1997, that dream became a reality, and since opening their own shop in Orem, Utah, the brothers have worked to constantly improve their auto repair company and the Utah County community. Martins Collision Repair has grown to employ over 40 employees ranging from auto repair technicians, mechanics and office staff. We pride ourselves in our quality services to our customers in both of our locations in Orem and Salem, Utah.
