Samba Fogo presents our 10th Annual Samba Queen Contest!
Saturday, January 26th at Metro Music Hall
Doors open at 8:00 p.m. with live Brazilian music.
Dance competition begins at 9:00 p.m.

The Samba Queen Contest is no ordinary event.
Dancers entertain the crowd as they compete for the title of 2019 Rainha Do Samba (Queen Of Samba) adorned in traditional Brazilian Carnival costumes of bright colors, feathers, sparkling bikinis and sky-high heels. Each contestant gets a chance to perform a two-minute solo with a live Brazilian Bateria (drum line), and celebrity judges and audience voting determine the winner!

The event is open to ages 21+. Cash Bar hosted by Metro Music Hall.
To honor our tenth annual event, we are welcoming five international samba experts to join us in Salt Lake City, to teach a full weekend of classes, January 25, 26 & 27! Our special guests include:
