    On the 8th of June 2014, the Queen Victoria Market hosted A Taste of Portugal - a small event that celebrates the Portuguese community's cultural heritage. Held each year to commemorate the Portuguese National Holiday, visitors from all backgrounds were encouraged to come along and experience the diverse folk dancing. On a day that offered plenty of exquisite Portuguese chicken and sing and dance, the crowds gathered around to take a look at traditional Portuguese culture on display. These are two examples of traditional folk dancing, one of which is Capoeira - a unique combination of martial arts, acrobatics and music. It is an art that is performed in all Portuguese-speaking countries that bring people together.
