Registration is closed

In the tradition of the The "Matanca do Porco" or  slaughtering of a pig, the PSC invites you to join us for this family style dinner dance that includes a traditional menu, wine, beer and soft drinks and great music! 

"Matanca do Porco" is a great tradition in Portugal that is more than providing for food, it is also a social happening, where families, neighbors and friends get together in a spirit of mutual help and celebration. The spirit of helping is very strong, and a family that receives help from the neighbor, friend or family, later will return the favor in other similar activities. The exchange of favors is a very traditional practice, still alive, goes beyond the slaughtering occasions and involves other products beyond the pork meat. Even nowadays, when the winter time comes, many people in the rural Portugal keep up with this old tradition.
