In celebration of the 170th anniversary of the arrival of the first Portuguese immigrants in Bermuda, a series of events have been scheduled for this weekend, including the Portuguese Holiday Community Block Party held last night [Nov 2] on Reid Street.

Sponsored by the Vasco da Gama Club, the evening kicked off at 6.00pm. The event featured the Portuguese School of Bermuda, the Vasco da Gama Folklore Group, In-Motion School of Dance, the Warwick Gombey Troupe, Vision School of Dance and more. The DJ and MC for the evening was DJ Scoobay of Young Guns.

Traditional Portuguese food, such as chouriço sandwiches, pork sandwiches and Portuguese donuts was available for sale, and many local vendors also participated in the event. There was entertainment for the whole family, such as laser tag, fun castles and more.


As a collaboration between the 170 Celebrations Committee and the Catholic Church of Bermuda, there will be a special church Mass today [Nov 3] at 1.30pm, at St. Theresa’s Cathedral followed by a Procession of Faith through the Victoria-Dundonald Street area.  The Procession will be followed by a Coffee Social hosted by the Portuguese Pastoral Council at Mount Saint Agnes Academy.
