Espírito Santo Festa
Holy Ghost Festival of Sausalito
Sunday, June 12 · 10:00am - 1:00pm
I.D.E.S.S.T. Saualito Portuguese Hall
511 Caledonia Street
The 123rd Continuous Annual IDESST Festa will be on Sunday, June 12th.
The parade begins forming at the Hall at (511 Caledonia) 10:00am marching to St. Mary’s Star of the Seas church (180 Harrison Street) to attend the special Pentecostal mass at 11:00, with lunch to follow after we return to the Hall.
The IDESST Holy Ghost Festa has a very special significance, not only due to its age, but also do the special geographic similarities between Sausalito and the Azores as we march up the Hills of Sausalito on the Pentecost Sunday to
celebrate Mass at the Star-of-The Sea Church, and then parade through downtown Sausalito with the city officials and dignitaries. We end up at the Hall for our traditional sopas, and Portuguese Chamarita folk dancing. We hope to see all of you at this very special event.
Parade Starts forming at 9:30am
Parade Leaves at 10:15
Mass at the Star of the Sea Church at 11:00am
Sopas served at 11:00am and 3:00pm
