RI CAPE VERDEAN INDEPENDENCE DAY FESTIVAL (JULY 5, 2015 @ 12PM) INDIA POINT PARK , PROVIDENCE RI


norberto-tavares+logoThe RI Cape Verdean Subcommittee has decided to dedicate our 40th Independence Festival to Norberto Tavares; a man who did much for Cabo Verde, our Culture and People. Tavares, a musician and social activist,  used his music to promote change and the betterment his nation and people.

Although Norberto Tavares was taken from us too soon, his legacy continues and RICVH wants to make sure his legacy is implanted in the mind of our young and future generations.  With that in mind, RICVH chose the song entitled “Nos Cabo Verde di Sperança” as the theme for its 2015 Independence Day Festival in Providence, Rhode Island.
The Rhode Island Capeverdean Heritage committee invites the community to “Join and Share our event page and celebrate our 40th Independence on July 5th 2015 @ India Point Park in Providence RI

Since 1976, the Rhode Island Cape Verdean Independence Day Festival is the oldest celebration of the Cape Verdean community in the United States. RICVH preserves and celebrates the Cape Verdean culture and heritage.

40th-cvThe festival goes from noon to dusk and features traditional music, dance and food, along with a cultural, health, wellness and educational tents. This year, there will also be arts and crafts from local artists as well as various activities for children. The NORBERTO TAVARES FOUNDATION will also have a booth in the cultural tent.

We always make this a special occasion and gaging by last year’s huge success, the committee anticipates a memorable event attended by thousands of people who come from throughout the United States and world to experience the culture of the Cape Verde Islands.

To put on this spectacular event we need help from sponsors who make a difference in our community. Funds raised will go toward upfront festival costs such as park rental, security, sound and entertainment, various cultural tents and other miscellaneous expenses. We hope that you will partner with us to celebrate the Cape Verdean heritage and culture while also bringing to light the unity and strength of the businesses in the area that are patronized by the Cape Verdean community.
