Our marching band performs throughout the year here in San Diego at many social and civic events but the greatest part is that we also travel abroad to various cities throughout California to represent our city of San Diego.

About United Portuguese S.E.S. Inc

San Diego’s Portuguese community today is made up of immigrants from the Azores, Madeira, and mainland Portugal going back five generations in some cases. As Portuguese, we have a natural pride in our traditions and in the global accomplishments of our ancestors. We strive to honor those who have come before us, preserve our traditions and customs, and instill in our youth the spirit of devotion to the Espirito Santo, so our community will go forward in faith and tradition, generation after generation.
