Events and Festivals in Recife
- January: Buscada- Festival of the island’s patron saint, Nossa Senhorado Pilar. Folk dancing, folk singing, and flower-ornamented boats on the water.
- February: Recife's Carnaval is one of the most spectacular events in the country. The celebrations have a distinctly greater African and Indian influence than the rest of the country. It’s sheer insanity from evening till dawn.
- April: The Pro Rock music festival is held for two days every year in April. It is where the country’s favourite independent artists come to show off.
- June: Festival de Sao Joao – Six centuries old, this festival mixes the Pagan with the Christian, in a celebration of rural life. There is drinking, dancing, mock weddings and fireworks. So don’t miss this out on your vacation travel itinerary planner.
