Festivities and Traditions

The joy of the people! There is no island like ours as far as the festivities are concerned, and we are determined to preserve and value the art of welcoming people.

Stop wondering ...

The Sanjoaninas, festivities honoring St. John, take over the streets of Angra do Heroísmo during ten days in the month of June. Parades, musical concerts, bullfighting (in arenas and with bulls on a rope), food stands, theater performances, fireworks and sporting events culminate in the parade of the so-called popular marches on the eve of St. John’s Day.

Star living!

Centered around picturesque chapels known as Impérios (literally, Empires), the Feasts of the Holy Spirit are intensely lived by the communities; the eight weeks between Easter Sunday and Trinity Sunday give way to festivities and to events where food is served to everyone, all of which enliven the different localities of the island.
