Feira de São Cristóvão - Festa Junina - Quadrilha do Sampaio #RioDeJaneiro #Brasil #Rio450anos #BRAZIL #Rio2016 #Rio450

Portuguese Midsummer Day (St John's Day) brought to Brazil during colonial times has become a very important popular event that is celebrated during a period that starts one week before St John's Day and ends one week after. As this nationwide festival, called "Festa Junina" (June Festival), happens during the European midsummer, it takes place in the Brazilian midwinter and is most associated with Northeastern Brazil, but is today celebrated in the whole country.

 

Festa de São João é assim – Na Feira de São Cristóvão que é quartel General das Festas Juninas do Rio e com a tradição de 53 anos da Quadrilha do Sampaio.
