Folklore in Braga

In the town of Braga there are around 23 folk dance troupes, among which are the São Vicente Rusga, Dr. Gonçalo Sampaio, Braga Teachers and the Santa Maria de Aveleda Troupes.

In addition to the Semana Santa (Holy Week) celebrations, the whole city is illuminated for the Festas de São João (June 23-24), which provides the excuse for ancient folk-dances, a fairground and general partying. There's also a festival of gigantones (giant carnival figures) between June 18-20.'The main pilgrimage to Bom Jesus takes place over Whitsun (six weeks after Easter). Braga also has a regular Tuesday market, held at the exhibition park in Avenida Pires Gonçalves, at the end of Avenida da Liberdade.
