Weekend at Festas de Lisboa

As you might know, if you followed us, a full month of events and initiatives just started in Lisbon. This post will help you if you are not sure about what to do this weekend, as we are trying to give some precious advices.

 

The 5th edition of the International American vintage music and dancing festival in Lisbon is this year larger than ever with open classes, concerts, vintage fairs and dancing workshops.. and much much else!

The Festival is located all over the city, from Parque Eduardo VII to Cais do Sodré to Martim Moniz. Check the full programme here!

 


 

If you ever dreamt of being an Choir DIrector, then you should definitely go to the Panteão Nacional. A choir will wait for you and other walkers, silently, to start giving directions. Funny, no?

Check it here! Only Saturday

 

Children and adults of every neighbourhood prepared dances and songs. They are going to show them at the Meo Arena on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

If you are curious, look at the entire list!

 

Over 30 movies realized by 12 women  directors will be part of this Cinema Festival. Side events are programmed as well, and for the first time this year, the audience will award the Prémio do Público. 

Official website here; Saturday and Sunday.

 

 

In Principe Real 10 European's writers work will be read every 30 minutes in 10 pavillions for 5 hours, so that the public will be able to enjoy all of them. The excerpts from the works of these wri­ters will be read by Por­tu­guese actors in venues like Pada­ria de São Roque, the Mira­douro São Pedro de Alcân­tara, and Palá­cio dos Con­des de Ceia, among others.
