São Paulo – A series of events will set the Day of the Arab Community in São Paulo, celebrated on the 25th of March. Amongst them there will have handicrafts workshops on the 25 de Março, traditional street in downtown São Paulo where many Arabs opened their business shops. The Day of the Arab Community in São Paulo, which is celebrated also as the Day of the Arab Immigrant, was instituted as a State Law in 2004. However, before the law, the day was already celebrated by immigrants and Arab descendants in São Paulo. They gave a very important contribution to the Brazilian culture – arab food, especially, is very appreciated in the country, where there influence can be seen everywhere, including in the language.
