Important information for groups and entertainers interested in performing for the Dia de Portugal Festival. Please read this information carefully.
Application Deadline: May 20
Any group (dance, musical, performing arts, etc.) or entertainer is eligible to perform for the Dia de Portugal Festival. Priority will be given to Portuguese and other groups from Portuguese-speaking parts of the world.
Once your group has been confirmed to perform, you will be notified of your performance time. If it is necessary that your group perform at a certain time during the day, please indicate that on your application. We will try our best to accommodate your needs. Your group will be required to be at the park and ready to perform 30 minutes before your scheduled time. If your group is not ready to go, we will proceed to the next group or entertainer that is ready.
Due to the limited space on stage, dance groups should plan to dance on the concrete in front of the stage.
Participation in the Dia de Portugal parade is not mandatory, though it is encouraged and appreciated. Please indicate on your application if your group will be able to participate in the parade.
There will be a 10-15 minute interval between performances. Please do not bring heavy props or backdrops that will require lengthy set-up time.
We will provide a sound system to accommodate both live and recorded music. Please indicate on your application what kind of equipment you will need; i.e. CD player, cassette player, microphones, etc..
If you suspect that your group will not be able to participate after having been confirmed, please let us know as soon as possible. There will be no penalty for cancellation, but it does make the day more difficult logistically and we appreciate your consideration.
Each group will receive a $250 stipend for performing at the festival.
