June Fest

The June Fest, in tribute to St. Gonçalo, is a genuine and remarkable combination of tradition and religion. Held in the city’s historical center, this popular festival has the participation of various drumming groups, where they perform their celebrated drumming contests, and of several folklore ranches from across the municipality.

This initiative is organized by the Municipality of Amarante, in collaboration with many local entities and leading figures. The June Fest annually mobilizes up to 13.500 people.
