The small town of Gustine, California, is in Merced County in the San Joaquin Valley, about 29 miles west of the city of Merced. Many of the early settlers were Portuguese, and the community is still steeped in Portuguese tradition. Every September the town holds an Our Lady of Miracles celebration. Gustine has the largest Portuguese Festa in the United States. However, not all of the celebrations are Portuguese. In the fall the town has the Wolfsen Sausage Tasting Event.
