Festivals in Portugal
Choose the right time to come to Portugal and you are guaranteed to have the best vacation of your life. Arrive during the peak summer months and have a blast with non-stop beach events and music festivals that allow you to dance in the streets and party until the wee hours of the morning.
Or experience some of the many traditional festivals that celebrate each village and town’s patron saint. And though these festivals – which the locals call festas – always start with a Mass followed by a procession, even non-Catholics can share and enjoy the fireworks, the music, the dancing and the alcohol-infused merrymaking that come afterward.
There is always a reason to celebrate in Portugal, and no matter what the festivities are about, whether they are country-wide jubilees or regional revelries, you can expect to have a great time.
