Dia De Portugal

The “Day of Portugal” official known as Dia de Portugal, de Camões e das Comunidades Portuguesas (Day of Portugal, Camões, and the Portuguese Communities), is Portugal’s National Day celebrated annually on June 10th.
The second Saturday in June, we join the Annual Dia de Portugal Festival at History Park San Jose (Kelley Park), one of the largest Portuguese events in California. A full day of festivities for the entire family are scheduled with great entertainment, a traditional Portuguese parade for many to participate, a variety of delicious Portuguese foods and many other booths.
Many join the celebration throughout the world. On June 10th tributes the death of Luís Vaz de Camões, who is considered Portugal’s and the Portuguese language’s greatest poet. His mastery of verse has been compared to that of Shakespeare, Vondel, Homer, Virgil and Dante. The influence of his masterpiece Os Lusíadas is so profound that Portuguese is called the “language of Camões”. Day of Camões, Portugal, and the Portuguese Communities, is Portugal’s National Day.
