The Zeiterion Performing Arts Center united with the top Portuguese cultural organizations to create a festa that celebrates the art, music and culture of Portugal!
The family-friendly downtown festa returns! Full of music, history, food and fun, this street fair showcases the richness of Southcoast’s vibrant Portuguese-American culture. The Zeiterion is proud to work alongside New Bedford’s finest Portuguese cultural organizations to bring this amazing party for a second year. You don’t have to be Portuguese to appreciate the tastes and sounds – you won’t want to miss it!
Fado legend Carlos do Carmo will perform on stage at the Zeiterion following Viva Portugal. For tickets and information, click here.
