Feast of the Blessed Sacrament announces entertainment lineup

NEW BEDFORD – With the 106th Feast of the Blessed Sacrament less than two months away, Feast President Rick Fernandes and his committee announced today the event’s headliners.

“We are proud to announce that Get the Led Out, will headline the Feast on Thursday Night, The Great Escape (A Tribute to Journey) will headline Friday Night, Nelson Rego is set to Headline Saturday Night, and Danny Klein’s Full House will finish our celebration off on Sunday Night,” said feast organizers in a press release.

The feast will return to Madeira Field Aug. 4 to 7 after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

“It’s going to feel good,” Larry Jacques, president of Clube Madeirense S.S. Sacramento, the sponsor of the feast, has told O Jornal. “It’s going to be like a big family reunion.”

The feast will kick off Thursday, Aug. 4, with the assembly of the Festeiros (Feast Committee Members) at the intersection of Earle Street and Acushnet Avenue. Led by the Feast President, the Festeiros will march in a special procession down Earle Street to Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church, where Father Daniel O. Reis will celebrate a special Benediction to the Blessed Sacrament.
