ABOUT THE EVENT :

OUR LADY OF FATIMA FESTIVAL 2012.

This year, the Our Lady of Fatima Parish puts on its 64th anniversary.

For more than 60 years, the Our Lady of Fatima Festival in Ludlow, MA has brought Portuguese-Americans together from all over New England.

The Our Lady of Fatima Festival is an annual celebration of four days held in honor of the Virgin Mary, and is noted for being one of the most significant Portuguese-American cultural events in the country as one of the Pioneer Valley’s
largest ethnic celebrations. It draws thousands of visitors to activities such as the outdoor Mass, candlelight procession and musical performances.

The Festival event goes all weekend with one of the highlights being Sundays annual walk through several closed streets in Ludlow.

And whether they come every year, or this was their first time, many say they’re now dedicated to the centuries old tradition.

Norberto Bergantim from Taunton, MA says “Our faith, Our Lady of Lord’s Faith. It’s a Portuguese tradition. So as you can see, it brings thousands of people here every year, so i get to bring people over, i’m a driver. I do it every year, so it’s fun.”

The procession is an honor to the Virgin Mary.
