São Pedro Association Festa

The São Pedro Association
is a Madeiran heritage association founded in 1922 and is focused on retaining its historical identity in our community. The annual festival is held at the San Pedro Park on Hobson Avenue in Bryte and is not only an Madeiran event, it is considered by the townsfolk as a community event. Photos by Jack Schwab.

The original association grounds were on the banks of the Sacramento River in the township of Riverbank. In the 20s, the festa was called the Riverbank Festa after the name of the area, which was later renamed to Bryte.

The Church and Park are on the list of Historical Sites and Buildings in West Sacramento.
