Dear Portuenses (people from Porto :P ),
Have you heard about S.joão? Sardines, “bifanas”, “caldo verde”, drinks, and the streets full of people celebrating? S. João happens every year on the night of 23rd June.
Thousands of people come to the city center and more traditional neighborhoods to pay a tribute to Saint John the Baptist, in a party that mixes sacred and profane traditions. An interesting tradition, among the people of Porto during the “São João”, is to hit each other either with garlic flowers or soft plastic hammers! Would be amazed by it :D
SÃO JOÃO 2017
Friday, June 23rd @Creu-IL, 6.30 pm
Here’s what we have planned for you: We start in “O Grão” where you can eat, drink and enjoy the real environment of this night. This association, O Grão, provides trainings for young students to go on volunteering mission in African countries. All the funds collected during this night will provide some help for those students :)
Price: 3.5€ at the @ESN Porto Office | 4€ at the door of the association
(the ticket gives you a menu that includes "Febras", Sardines, caldo verde and drinks)
You also can buy:
- Beer, sangria or juices - 1.5€
- “Febras” or sardines - 1.5€
- Caldo Verde (soup) - 1.5€
ESN Porto is going to contribute with 1€ for each Erasmus Student and ESNer that attend to the event.
We'll be offering hammers and flame-propelled balloons to be thrown into the sky as an amazing time is guaranteed.
Where: Creu-IL (maps), near Carolina Michaelis metro station
Registrations: Starton Monday, 19th of June. The office is open from 14:30 to 18:00 and if you want, you can register two friends but you need their ESNcard number and you need to pay their fee.
See you there!
