2nd Worldwide Uchinanchu Conference – Brazil August 2008

The 1st worldwide Uchinanchu Conference was held in Hawaii August 29 to September 2, 2003. This is the first time Uchinanchu worldwide gathered together outside of Okinawa. Over 2,000 from outside Hawaii attended.

The 2nd Worldwide Uchinanchu Conference will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil August 22 to 25, 2008, concurrently with the 100 year Brazil Centennial Celebration and the 12th WUB International Conference. Argentina will also be celebrating their 100 year centennial at about the same time.

The Worldwide Uchinanchu Festivals in Okinawa have been a tremendous success. Unfortunately it is held every five years. Many have expressed an interest to gather together more often. The Worldwide Uchinanchu Conference was established to provide an opportunity for Uchinanchu worldwide to gather outside of Okinawa between the Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival in Okinawa.

Let us gather together again in Brazil after the successful 4th Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival in Okinawa October 2006, where almost 5,000 attended from Outside Okinawa.
