During the month of June, festivities are held in honour of the popular saints, beginning with Santo António (Saint Anthony), celebrated with particular enthusiasm in the parish bearing his name.

Other parishes in the municipality of Funchal, namely São Pedro (Saint Peter) and São João (Saint John), also organize parades on the eve of the day of São João (23rd), along the streets of Rua da Pretas, Rua da Carreira and Rua de São João, a very lively celebration typical of the popular saint’s festive evenings.
