One of the largest celebrations of Cape Verdean culture takes place right here on the Southcoast. The 2013 Cape Verdean festival kicks off this weekend.

2013 marks the 11th year of the Onset Cape Verdean festival, and it will be one of the best yet! Food, music and more! It takes place Saturday August 10, 2013 (rain date Sunday August 11, 2013). It all begins at 11am, and goes until 6pm. Enjoy great Cape Verd food available in the covered food court!

The best part about this fesitval is that it is free to get in! Enjoy live entertainment from Ze Rui de Pina and Silvestre Alberto Soares Mascasanhas. New Bedford's own Milton and His Friends will also be there!

There are three designated parking areas along Onset Avenue, and it will only cost $10. There are shuttles to transport passengers to and from the festival.
