Festas de Lisboa 2011

Every June Lisbon becomes a huge party the whole month. The city gets all the street entertainment you can imagine with festivals, cinema, music, theater, parades…

The Festas de Lisboa is also a place to discover new contemporary cultural expressions and different ways of interaction between artists and its audiences.

All the main streets and the historical quarters of Lisbon get prepared to party with celebrations that include dances, fados and eating grilled sardines. It’s also traditional to celebrate a collective weeding ceremony and all the brides who participate are known as the ‘Brides of Santo Antonio’.

If you don’t want to miss all those huge parties, even the sardines contest, you can stay with us at Equity Point Lisboa Hostel. You’ll have all the main parties at walking distance!
