San Joaquin Valley Portuguese Festival
The celebration is open to all people to come discover the culture and heritage of the Portuguese people and honor their contributions to the San Joaquin Valley and the state of California. This family-friendly event will showcase traditional Portuguese dancing, music, and cuisine. The Festival will be kicked off by a traditional Portuguese parade followed by plenty of activities including folklore performances, tourada á corda (running with bulls held on a rope), philharmonic performances, Chamarita (Portuguese traditional dance) lessons, a Portuguese bazaar, traditional Portuguese games, and a cultural exhibit. We will also have plenty of room for Portuguese food and craft vendors to join us. Other activities will include a wine and cheese tasting area, carnival rides, live performances including a Fado (traditional Portuguese opera type) singer, the Portuguese Kids comedy show, and Eratoxica (Portuguese rock band). The highlight of the festival will be the live performance of Portugal's very own, Roberto Leal! Join us for the exciting festivities, performances, and a great family environment. Vendor and sponsor opportunities are available. Proceeds benefit the Carlos Vieira Foundation's Race for Autism campaign.
