I need to set my application's culture through an App.Config file, so that "pt-BR" is used automatically for parsing dates without the need to manually inform the culture for each operation.
As far as I know, there's a
globalization section that can be defined inside the
system.web section in a Web.Config file, but I'm running a console application and I can't figure this out.

I don't know a built-in way to set it from App.config, but you could just define a key in your App.config like this
<configuration> <appSettings> <add key="DefaultCulture" value="pt-BR" /> </appSettings> </configuration>
and in your application read that value and set the culture
CultureInfo culture = new CultureInfo(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["DefaultCulture"]); Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = culture; Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = culture;
Also, as @Ilya has mentioned, since .NET 4.5 you can set the default culture once, rather than per-thread:
CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentCulture = culture CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentUICulture = culture
Starting form .Net 4.5 it's possible to set the default thread culture so there is no need to fix it per thread:
CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("pt-BR"); CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo("pt-BR");
I haven't yet found a configuration that matches
globalization section unfortunately.
Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("bn-BD");
