Like any other festival goer, I love me a good food festival. I’m not going to try veil this thinly but Portuguese festivals are the places to be. Everyone’s always up for a good time plus the food and entertainment is always on point.
As a fellow Madeiran myself, the first generation of my family to be born in South Africa, I’m excited that there’s finally a Madeiran Portuguese festival.
I promise you that there is much more to Madeira other than being the homeland of Cristiano Ronaldo.
