Porto da Cruz Festival this weekend

Grape and Farmer Festival

Porto da Cruz Festival this weekend 1This weekend sees the Grape and Farmer Festival in Porto da Cruz, on the north coast of the island. It is organised by the local Freguesia Porto da Cruz and features winemaking and local produce, together with an allegoric parade and the usual “fiesta” stalls.

Porto da Cruz is associated with the cultivation and harvesting of sugarcane as well as winemaking and has an aguardente factory, completed in 1858, which also serves as something of a tourist attraction. The Friguesia facebook page is here.
