Rhode Island Day of Portugal Flag Raising Ceremony
June 7, 2021 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT
The “Day of Portugal” is a holiday celebrated every year on June 10th in every corner of the Portuguese-speaking world. Officially known as “Dia de Portugal, de Camões e das Comunidades Portuguesas” (Day of Portugal, Camões and the Portuguese Communities), June 10th commemorates the death of the revered Portuguese poet, Luís Vaz de Camões in 1580. Camões is best known for his epic poem, Os Lusíadas, which is a tribute to the golden age of Portugal’s maritime exploration and discoveries.
Join the Town of Bristol & The 2021 RI Day of Portugal Committee for a Flag Raising Ceremony at Bristol Town Hall.
