Last weekend we went to the Brazilian Room in Berkeley’s Tilden Park to attend the wedding of our friends’ daughter. It was foggy, and a bit cold, but the love in the air and the festival feeling warmed us all, as did the dancing! We even ended up going outside as the evening wore on to dance al fresco on the patio.
It’s a beautiful place for a wedding, and here’s a quote from the website to give you a bit of history about this landmark building:
“The Brazilian Room derives its name from its rich hardwood paneling. These walls were once part of the Golden Gate International Exposition’s ‘World’s Fair’ famed Brazilian Pavilion, displayed on Treasure Island in 1939. When the exposition ended, the Brazilian Room was presented to the East Bay Regional Park District by the country of Brazil as a gift of friendship. Because the exterior of the building was perishable, the building was dismantled for transport to Tilden Regional Park. The Works Progress Administration built a new permanent exterior, combining local rock and timber with the beautiful walls, floors and fixtures from Brazil.”
