The Carlos Vieira Foundation is proud to host the San Joaquin Valley Portuguese Festival presented by PFSA, the “Portuguese Fraternal Society of America.” The celebration is open to ALL people to come discover the culture and heritage of the Portuguese people and honor their contributions to the San Joaquin Valley and the state of California.

The Festival will be held at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in Turlock, CA on Saturday April 13, 2019, from 9:00 A.M. to midnight.

This family-friendly event will showcase traditional Portuguese dancing, music, and cuisine.

Quote of the Day:
"Agriculture is not crop production as popular belief holds - it's the production of food and fiber from the world's land and waters. Without agriculture it is not possible to have a city, stock market, banks, university, church or army. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization and any stable economy.
