The municipality of Tabaí (4,046 inhabitants in 2007; 9,475 ha) is located 80 km north-west of Porto Alegre.

Tabaí is named for Tupi-Guarani words meaning "union of waters", referring to the confluence of streams that form river Santa Cruz, here the limit with the neighboring municipality of Triunfo.
Tabaí was established by Azorean immigrants mostly coming from Taquari, German immigrants coming from São Leopoldo, and Italian immigrants coming from the mountains. Originally known as São Joaquim, the settlement was renamed to Tabaí in 1940.
The municipality of Tabaí was established by State Law No. 10,660 promulgated on 28 December 1995, separating from Taquari, and inaugurated on 1 January 1997.
