Festa de São Benedito

Cultural in Cuiabá

The Festa de São Benedito takes place during the first week of July at the Igreja Nossa Senhora do Rosário e São Benedito. The holiday has a more Umbanda (white magic) than Catholic flavor; it’s celebrated with colorful, traditional dances and regional foods such as bolos de queijo (cheese balls) and bolos de arroz (rice balls).
