Festa Junina (June Festival) is a Catholic tradition that takes place in June (and sometimes July as well) to celebrate saints and new plantation seasons.
This festivity usually takes place at a grand tent made of raw material that was once commonly used for special festivities in old rural areas. Men and women dress up as farm rural people, with large straw hats, fake freckles, painted gap teeth and women wear pigtails. This is a tribute to the origins of Brazilian country music.
All of Brazil celebrates this annual event. The major cities have the largest celebrations, though individual events can be found in almost every neighborhood.
