Day of Portugal

In June, Americans of Portuguese heritage join together with people throughout the world in a celebration of Portuguese culture – Dia de Portugal, de Camões e das Comunidades Portuguesas.

In Rhode Island, Day of Portugal has been celebrated since 1978, making 2022 the 45th year of the festival.

Every second Saturday and Sunday in June, RI Day of Portugal is a celebration of music, Portuguese food, traditional folklore and a parade. This festival provides an opportunity for families and community members to come together to celebrate all things Portugal.

This year, join us on June 11 and 12 to celebrate Rhode Island Day of Portugal at The Providence Rink at BankNewport City Center, located in Kennedy Plaza. On Saturday, June 11, the festival will be celebrated from 2PM – 10PM. On Sunday June 12, the festival will be celebrated from 1PM – 10PM, with an accompanying parade from 3PM – 4PM.
