In Brazil the Festa Junina (Folk Fest) parties are to celebrate the saints Anthony, John and Peter with lots of Brazilian traditional foods, drink. Just like Carnival, these festivities involve extravagant costumes, but in this case, it is always peasant costumes. The men dress up as farm boys with large straw hats and the women wear checked dresses with pigtails, freckles and a gap painted between their front teeth. During the festivities, a wedding is celebrated followed by Quadrilha a type of square dance.
If you are interested in learning about the Brazilian culture, the Festa Junina is a good opportunity!
Enjoy the cultural festivities on June 1st from 6-10pm at St. Cecilia Church – 5418 Louisiana Ave. St Louis, MO 63111
