The Festival of St John

The Festival of St John
The Festival of St John represents the start of summer celebrations on the island of Porto Santo.
The commemorations feature numerous sociocultural activities, one of the most striking of which is the traditional ‘popular parades’ on the Night of St John.
The festival takes place all over the island, but the main activities are held in the centre of Vila Baleira. On the Night of St John, 23 June, you can attend the popular parade which involves various groups representing different parts of the island. Then, you can jump over the bonfire and watch an open-air concert on Barqueiro Square.
There are food and drinks stands all over the city and many activities are held every day and night of the Festival of St John.
