The festival O Sol da Caparica is an organization of the Municipality of Almada, this year in partnership with the Chiado Group.
In March, the municipality revealed that it changed partners in the organization of the festival, with a protocol of 70 thousand euros, which allows “a significant saving of public funds, which will be channelled for investment in other strategic, social, cultural and tourist areas”.
The municipality of Almada revealed to have accumulated loss of close to five million euros with the holding of five editions of the festival O Sol da Caparica, which led her to look for a new promoter.
