The Highlight of the Boston Portuguese Festival and the one event that gives true meaning to the word “Community”, the Day of Portugal Parade is made by the people and for the people. This year, as we mark the celebration of the 8th edition of the Boston Portuguese Festival, we are counting on you to march with us and embrace the Portuguese identity. Regardless of your nationality, this is a great party that displays the most popular elements of one of the oldest countries in the World.
The parade will include a variety of colourful floats, bands, and marching groups from various Portuguese communities across Massachusetts, as well as stands selling Portuguese delicacies and other regional products.
It will start at Portuguese Square (Concord Avenue) in Somerville and work its way down Cambridge Street through Inman Square to its ending location in front of St. Anthony’s Church at the corner of Cambridge Street and Cardinal Medeiros Avenue.
Block Party starring Nélia, the famous Portuguese-American singer,immediately after the Parade in Saint Anthony’s Churchyard (starting around 4:30pm).
