Think open-air markets, an array of food and traditional ingredients, olives, wine, live music, kids entertainment, fado and rancho sessions, beauty pageants, dance acts and its very own Brazilian-styled carnival, and you’ll only be skimming the surface of possibility come this October.

From food markets to fine dining and a water world for the kids, patrons can pace themselves comfortable in the knowledge that they get four full days to indulge all of their senses.

With more exciting announcements still to be made over the coming weeks, A FESTA PORTUGUESA is an exciting and original inclusion on the local cultural and exhibition calendar and one that looks set to deliver world-famous liberality in style!
