Portugal the Festa

14th May 2023
11:00 am - 09:00 pm
Celebrating 70 years of Portuguese immigration to Canada with food, music and culture

This day is to celebrate our culture and traditions at the heart of the city of Toronto with other ethnicities at Nathan Philips Square for the first time in the history of the Portuguese Community.

The Festivities will culminate on Sunday, as we overtake downtown Toronto with a celebration of Portuguese culture for everyone to experience. This event will feature performances by Bárbara Bandeira and Pedro Abrunhosa from Portugal, as well as local artists and folclore groups.
And since food is a cornerstone of our heritage, local restaurants will be setting up tents and serving Portuguese delicacies.
