Feira de São Cristóvão’s history

During the XX century, many people from Nordeste came to Rio de Janeiro looking for work opportunities. They would go to Campo de São Cristóvão to work in construction. That’s why they settled there. These meetings had typical music and food from Nordeste. With time, these meetings became an event and the fair started to happen around Campo de São Cristóvão in the open air. In 2003, this incredible fair gained a place of its own inside the pavilion. The pavilion was refurbished by Rio’s City Hall and transformed into the Luiz Gonzaga Northeastern Traditions Center as we know it today.
