Volta Redonda is one of the main cities of Rio de Janeiro. It is also the cradle of industrialization in Brazil and main city of the Médio Paraíba Fluminense.

Culture

Volta Redonda Culture Department has developed a great job to rescue the artistic and cultural soul in the city through its projects and activities.

STAGE ON WHEELS

It is an initiative that leads art, dance, music and theater to every neighborhood of the city through weekly caravans.

CINEMA ON THE STREET

It is a daily program that takes place in several neighborhoods allowing the population to the access of national and international great movies.

SERENADE IN THE NEIBHBORHOODS

The Best Age is once again gifted with the project that focuses on improving their quality of life, receiving dancing balls next to their houses.

FAIRS AND EXHIBITIONS

Two remarkable great fairs are performed in the city, Feira da Primavera (Spring Exhibition) and the Expoagro, which gather millions of people on São João Island, an area with excellent infrastructure to receive large tonnage events. These are events that move the city and region economy.

CULTURE HOUSE

It is a project which has among its aims to decentralize the art and the culture, jutting its activities to the neighborhoods through cultural spaces. The initiative, developed in fourteen city neighborhoods, offers dancing workshops, plastic arts, drawing, music and theater to all the population.

CULTURE FOR ALL

It is an innovator project that provides 3.000 seats to all the population to attend free shows and plays with the great national artists every week in the city. Before each show, the artists of the city have the chance to perform. The ticket is a liter of milk to the institutions in need in the city.

CULTURAL SPACES

They are spots that tell a little of the city history and that shelter works of art or they serve as a stage of events. They are some of our wealth that our city has. Among them distinguishing Memorial dos Ex-Combatentes ( The Ex Fighter Memorial), Espaço de Artes Zélia Arbex (Zélia Arbex Art Space), Memorial Zumbi ( Zumbi Memorial) and Biblioteca Municipal (City Library), which will undergo a great remodel to offer better services to the citizens, are also highlighted. All of this, to offer a cultural service with quality to Volta Redonda and surrounding.
