Ethnic Festivals Boston Area Summer 2011

This weekend is the first Brazilian Festa Junina at Santo Antonio in Cambridge and next weekend (6/3-5) is the Arlington Greek Festival, favored by many hounds because they roast lamb on a spit. Many of the Portuguese Social Clubs in the area have festivals with traditional foods and there is the Blessed Sacrament (Madeira Festival) in Fall River which is the largest in the area. Cambridge Mayfair (this weekend), Riverfest (??) and Carnival (September) usually both have some ethnic foods. Later in the summer the Serbian church on Rt 16 in Cambridge has a festival which also includes lamb on a spit. And the Lowell Folk Festival (7/29-31) and other festivals in the Lowell Area (Riverfest is 6/11) have ethnic food. In August there is the Dominican parade and festival at Franklin Park. Lastly there are the North End Processions and Feasts which vary in their chowish-ness, as well as the Cosmas and Damian the weekend after Labor Day in East Cambridge. That same weekend is usually the Brazilian "7th of September" festival in a local park. I am going to post the list of Greek Festivals and Festas Juninas separately so this topic doesn't open with a full page post, but keep in mind that on future visits you'll need to expand informational posts below to get the dates.
