The Annual San Joaquin Valley Festival is Back!

About this event

The Carlos Vieira Foundation is proud to host the Annual San Joaquin Valley Portuguese Festival presented by PFSA, the Portuguese Fraternal Society of America. This year the festival will be a two-day event held on Saturday and Sunday, August 28th and 29th at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in Turlock, CA. In 2019, the festival attracted over 15,000 attendees from across the state and was featured on several news channels, including Portugal’s national news. The festival 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.

The family-friendly event will showcase traditional Portuguese dancing, music, and cuisine. The festival will be kicked off by a Portuguese parade on Saturday followed by plenty of activities including folklore performances, bull on a rope by Joe Vaz, philharmonic performances, wine and cheese tasting, a cultural exhibit, carnival rides, plenty of Portuguese food and craft vendors. We will also have exciting performances on the 51FIFTY Stage throughout the day including Fadista Marissa, Generations Band, Alcides Machado, Ze Duarte, Chico Avila, and from the East Coast Vavo Brito, Sandro G, David DeMelo, and Nelia! (Performers subject to change due to Covid-19 Travel Ban Restrictions)

The festivities will continue on Sunday and the main attraction will be a traditional Portuguese Bloodless Bullfight! Come experience the Portuguese culture while supporting a great cause. All proceeds benefit our Race for Autism campaign which helps families who have children living with Autism in Central California.

Two-day advance tickets will are $15 pre-sale only. Tickets at the gate will be $10 per day, kids under 10 years old get free admission to the festival.
