Good weather is back and with it the weekend.
They will be filled days, with the end of the Portuguese Cup (Saturday) and, especially, the European elections (Sunday). This also means that we all have good reasons to leave home. But we decided to throw ‘hands on the masses’ and find even more reasons to make it a worthy weekend in Greater Lisbon or Greater Porto.
And there are many portfolio-friendly cultural offerings for these days May 24, 25 and 26.
The best thing is to prepare the agenda and take note of our suggestions.
Out Jazz is there
The Out Jazz is already one of the most ‘hip’ traditions in Lisbon. Outdoor music and a good time with friends at the end of Sunday. The recipe is infallible and is to take weekly. In the month of May, the Out Jazz takes place in the Garden of the Tower of Belém. This Sunday, the 26th, the musical honors are by Calú Moreira and Lycky. The song starts at 5 pm. The animation starts before and continues. Learn more about this year’s Sommersby Out Jazz edition here.
Lisbon is Delas
This May, in Lisbon, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday has been a Feminist Festival. The event is almost at an end but the agenda is varied and deserves attention, in an idea that, from music to the arts, through society and politics, reminded us that there is much to hear and discover. Click here and get to know the events you can still hope for.
‘When we change a Country he changes us with him’
April 25 has already passed but the Carnation Revolution, to which we have returned the right to vote in freedom, continues to be celebrated. Appropriately, the exhibition curated by historian and commentator Raquel Varela – ‘When we change a country he changes us with him’ – and that has been evident in the Palace of Egypt, in Oeiras, comes to an end this Sunday, election day. Take the opportunity!
Calouste: a life, not an exhibition
From the sciences to the arts, the Gulbenkian Foundation has long left us a legacy. Behind the Foundation is a man and a prominent name, Calouste Gulbenkian. In ‘Calouste: a life, not an exhibition’, we find a journey through the history of who Calouste was and what he left for the next generations. To see in Lisbon, in the ‘house’ that received its name, until the end of the year. The entrance, this, is free.
In the Shade of the Tile
The gallery Ratton, in Rua da Academia de Ciencias, has a showcase of the works in the tile of Lourdes de Castro, an artist who has already counted on his works in the most diverse spaces and that until May 31 counts with works in tile their patents. Enjoy, it’s almost over!
The Fnac de Santa Catarina, in the heart of Invicta, has an exhibition of photographs by Jean-Pierre Leloir, the photographer who has reserved his place among the biggest names in jazz. To find out until June 3. Learn more here.
Dominguinhos at MAR Shopping
On Sundays in the morning, it’s time for Dominguinhos at MAR Shopping, in Matosinhos, with workshops created to think about the little one. This Sunday, May 26, the youngest again have a program for them. Admission is free but registration is required. Learn more by clicking here.
There is music at Bom Sucesso Market
The Bom Sucesso Market has counted on musical animation for the most varied tastes. This Saturday, May 25th, from 10 pm onwards, will be no exception. This week’s proposal involves the music of Lab Trio, a musical symbiosis that joins funk and jazz. Learn more details here.
The Douro on display
The exhibition ‘Douro [DWR] 3 solos between heaven and earth’ is evident in the Pasteleira Reservoir until April 20. It is an exhibition on the Douro region, in all its territory from the border with Spain to the sea. The entrance is free. To see until August 31. More details here.
Portobello … Porto Belo
Every Saturday, the historic and world-famous London market of Portobello has a version to think about ‘relax’ at Invicta. Here is Porto Bello, which has several benches. The purchases will have to be paid with the effort of the wallet, the ride not for that.
Where Carlos Alberto Square
When Every Saturday, between 10 am and 7 pm
There is a market in Praça de Parada Piglet
On Fridays and Saturdays, the ‘tradition’ commands that the Praça de Parada Leitão, in the center of the city Invicta, is a market place. Enjoy the ride!
