About Portugal

Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the Algarve’s beaches are a major destination and much of the nation’s architecture dates to the 1500s–1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire.

Food & Entertainment

Experience a taste of Portugal with grilled specialties from our “churrasco”.  Fine wines from Portugal will be available including the best examples of Port.  From our Bakery, enjoy our pastries including the World-famous “Pastry from Belm”, a delicacy that is sure to help you remember your visit to our Pavilion!

The Portugal Pavilion will feature performances by talented local Portuguese artists who love the music, culture, and artistry that Portugal and the Portuguese are famous for.  Great accordionists, dance troupes, vocal artists and a bit of “Fado” will accent our stage during the course of our Carabram weekend.
