Comida di Buteco Festival

Top choice food & drink in Belo Horizonte

Visiting between mid-April and mid-May? Don't miss the Comida di Buteco festival, during which hundreds of butecos (neighborhood bars) compete to see who makes the best bar food. Members of the general public cast votes on a scale of one to 10 for each buteco they visit; these votes along with those of the festival's official jury determine prize winners.

Originating right here in 1999, it has since expanded to over a dozen other Brazilian cities.
