Portugal Day takes place in the first week of June each year with singing, dancing, and fun events within the Portuguese community. This year, the Alliance of Portuguese Clubs & Associations of Ontario celebrated Portugal Day with a week of events starting with a parade on Sunday June 9th and then a weekend celebration at Downsview Park on Friday June 14th - Sunday June 16th.
