Fiesta San Pedro

Fiesta San Pedro

Fiesta San Pedro is a week celebration filled with colour, pomp, gaiety and fun for the Portuguese Eurasian community of Malacca to commemorate the feast of St. Peter which is observed on June 28th. The fiesta observes the feast of St. Peter the patron saint of fishermen. Its special position in the community dates back to the days when fishing was the main livelihood of the settlement’s residents and those living at Praya Lane and Kampong Bandar Hilir.
