Forró e arraiá no salgueiro - RJ

Festa Junina in Salgueiro is a vibrant celebration that reflects the cultural richness of Brazil’s northeastern region, home to the renowned Salgueiro samba school. Held annually in June and early July, this festival transforms the streets of Salgueiro into a colorful spectacle of forró music, traditional cuisine like corn cakes and pé-de-moleque, and the lively rhythms of samba. Amidst the decorated streets and paper lanterns, locals and visitors come together to dance the quadrilha and celebrate with the warmth and hospitality for which Salgueiro is known. It’s a festive tribute to Saint John the Baptist that embodies the spirit of community and the passion of the Salgueiro samba school, making it an unforgettable experience for all.
