Feijoada on the Farm​

An annual event Feijoada at the Farm is our traditional Brazilian celebration! Feijoada is traditionally served for lunch on Saturday or Sunday and intended to be a leisurely midday meal. It is meant to be enjoyed throughout the day and not eaten under rushed circumstances.


The meal is usually eaten with extended family and paired with an event like watching a soccer or other social event. Because of the dish's heavy ingredients and rich flavors, feijoada is viewed as Brazilian soul food. 

For this event, you can expect this family-friendly day to be full of food, good times, soccer (if desired) and fun for the kids!

Food: Traditional Brazilian Feijoada and all the trimmings!


Labor Day Welcome Back

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is celebrated in cities and towns across the United States with music, parades, picnics, barbecue and kids’ entertainment. For many Americans, particularly children and young adults, it represents the end of the summer and the start of the back-to-school season.

One of the most important moments of our event will be the presentation of our donations to our two supported charities this year, American Society and its worthy volunteers work hard all year to raise money for worthy causes and this presentation is the culmination of our 2018-2019 efforts.
There will also be a full program of entertainment –  and perfect start the second half of the year.
