Festas Juninas in Rio de Janeiro 2013

UPDATE 08/07: I have posted about some Festas Julinas here with updated details.

Once again it’s time to dust off your best caipira fancy dress and get ready for some Festas Juninas! These parties celebrate a trio of saints: Santo Antônio, São João and São Pedro and genrally take place in June (hence the name!). It’s a celebration of the traditional way of life in Brazil so there are lots of traditional foods such as arroz doce, bolo de fubá, canjica, cocada and many more. For those who like to dance there will be lots of forró!

São João Carioca and Arraiá da Fundição are the standout parties with big names such as ‘Sargento Pimenta’ and ‘Preta Gil’ involved. Arraial da Providência is also a popular party taking place in the Jockey Club in Gávea and has an extensive programme so check the website for the complete details of entertainment on offer.

Here is a list of Festas Juninas in Rio de Janeiro 2013. This information was provided by each of the individual events to Brazilian blogs so apologies that some are incomplete.
