Brazil Independence Day

Every year, Brazilians take the streets on September 7 with demonstrations of national pride, with military parades happening all over the country...

Happy Brazil Independence Day!

This date marks the Brazilian declaration of independence from Portugal, which took place on September 7, 1822. Some years later, with the signing of the Treaty of Rio de Janeiro in 1825, Brazil received formal recognition of its independence.

In 2022, we are celebrating our 200th anniversary of Brazil's independence.

Brazil Independence Day Timeline

Brazi Independence Day


In 1815, the Portugal king authorizes the Prince Regent to rule in his place. He shares the authority to rule in case of death or calamity on his son and heir, the Prince Regent, Dom Pedro.

In 1820, Portugal's Constitutional Rebellion causes King Dom João VI to leave Brazil and return to Portugal. This political revolution was led by those who wanted a constitution detailing the people's rights.

In 1822, the new nation issues its Declaration of Independence on September 22, stating that Brazil was independent from the United Kingdom of Portugal.

In 1824, Brazil adopts its first constitution and the country is recognized by the United States.

Military parades and patriotic performances take multitudes to the streets.

At night, some cities have fireworks shows and Brazilian singers make people celebrate by singing and dancing.

At the Ministries Esplanade (in Brasilia), one of the main celebration is hosted with the president of Brazil watching the ceremony.
