Didn’t we tell you last time? Spring 2016 Brings Happy Events to the Algarve! Today we’ll see just how eventful March 2016 on the sunny and already warm shores of the Portuguese side of the Atlantic gets, since last time we could only cover a few of the many fairs, shows and interesting activities scheduled to take place here this month.
The 8th of March Sees the International Women’s Day celebrated worldwide. But the Portuguese in particular like to be involved and proactive. So a few days later, on March 13th, in Tavira, the Municipality is organizing the 8th edition of the International Women’s Day Race with the aim of raising money for the Oncology Association of Algarve.
If you like the music of renowned Brazilian singer Paula Fernandes, know that she will give a concert on March 24th at the Portimao Arena from 9:30 PM. The young singer has sold over 3 million records and just as many DVDs all around the world.
Late March sees the Catholic Portuguese celebrating Easter on the 27th. This comes with a whole array of religious and popular celebrations. In Tavira, for instance, celebrations are held on the 13th, 20th and 21st of March. People will also eat “Folar”, the traditional cake, which has fairs dedicated to it.
The magic of the Algarve is that even small towns have traditional celebrations. For instance, “Festa das Tochas Floridas” (or the Flower Torches Festival) is typical of Sao Bras de Alportel, while the Sovereign Mother Festival is celebrated in Loule in honor of the Virgin Mary.
Of course, don’t think these are all the events taking place in the Algarve this month! In fact, these are just a few of the highlights. There are private parties and countless street markets and fairs to speak of in most of the towns in the Algarve. But it’s best to let you discover them.
Best way to travel in the Algarve? You can book an Albufeira transfer or a Faro transfer to virtually any part of Portugal.
