The Portuguese Festival

Every year ACAPO (Alliance of Portuguese Clubs and Associations of Ontario) hosts a fes­ti­val and fair in Trinity-Bellwoods park. There’s music, food, tra­di­tional cos­tumes and lots of fun to be had in the wide open space that’s friendly to dogs and kids alike.

It’s events like this that make our city such an inter­est­ing place to live.

We’ve got the whole world in this incred­i­ble city and we can pop in and out of dif­fer­ent coun­tries and cul­tures just by walk­ing down a street or set­ting out to a local park.

Make this your week­end to dis­cover Portugal’s incred­i­ble cul­ture in your own back yard. Be sure to catch the Portuguese metal band, Moonspell, in the park tonight at 8pm. They sing about vam­pires in Portuguese! And English. In fact they did this song, Vampiria, for the movie “Queen of the Damned”.

To get in the spirit, here is one of our favourite recipes from that remark­able coun­try — Portuguese Seafood Stew. Remember you can pick up sus­tain­able fish at our fish counter!
