ARRAIÁ FEST do FORROBODÓ.
“Festa Junina is the term used to describe the traditional festivities that happen at the beginning of the Brazilian winter in June. It is a month to commemorate some of the most famous saints for Catholics; namely Saint Anthony, Saint John the
Baptist and Saint Peter. It is also a month to honor rain, the harvest season and marital union. Visitors celebrate from mid-June until the end of July and in some cities, festivities even continue until late August. Those attending will be treated
to typical Brazilian food, will dress up like farmers, enjoy bonfires and dance the Quadrilha. After Carnival, it is the second most important popular celebration in Brazilian culture.”
