There are 3 civil parishes which comprise the historical city - Sao Pedro, Sao Sebastiao, and Sao Jose. Ponta Delgada became region's capital under Portugal's revised constitution of 1976. The town is the centre of annual religious celebrations associated with the Feast of Lord Holy Christ of the Miracles. The festival is held in Campo de Sao Francisco (in front of Fort Sao Bras). The time-honoured feast day occurs the 5th Sunday of Easter. It attracts locals and other member islands, as well as groups from within Portuguese diaspora and numerous tourists.

One of the most popular non-religious events in Ponta Delgada is Noites de Verao (Nights of Summer). It is a summer event, that is normally held in the square of Campo do Sao Francisco, attracting family, friends and tourists, with a wealth of vendors selling refreshments, food, or small goods. This age-long festival features nightly musical events, from popular singers, folklore groups, concert bands, national and international stars. Noites de Verao is supported by the municipal government and usually starts in late June, as the "nights" run four months, until September.
