Enjoy events all year long in Paraty
The increasing cultural interest around Paraty, that has an income of about 80% due to tourism, began, no doubts about it, with the FLIP. From the first edition of the Literary Festival, back in 2003, the city kept the attention and the quality of the event launched Paraty as one of the main cultural spots in Brasil. FLIP means crowded bars and streets filled with people going from one place to another. The bookings usually need to be made from one year to another, at least.
During the rest of the year, the air in Paraty got filled with the other arts, like Jazz, films, dance and photography. The first main cultural event of the cultural calendar in Paraty is the Bourbon Jazz Festival, an international jazz festival that takes place in the events area and in the streets of the Historic Centre.
