This annual Irish festival revolves around James Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses. The festival is held at the Finnegan's Pub with a traditional reading of Joyce's texts (in eight languages to prove that the writer’s more intense work can be translated). Other proceedings include the Jameson Bloomsday Award Ceremony, in honor of those who help disseminate the Irish cultural cause in Brazil.

- Venue Description:
Named after James Joyce's classic novel,Finnegans Wake, this fashionable pub is a favorite among the 30-something inhabitants of São Paulo. Besides the typical Irish setting, with wooden tables and serving counter, and celebration extravaganzas like the green beer on Saint Patrick's Day, there are many typical Gaelic touches such as the famed Irish Coffee, and typical dishes and drinks from the Emerald Isle. For those with an appetite, the "Finnismonster" sandwich should do the trick: two hamburgers, lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise, on wholemeal bread, served with French fries.
