Lisbon Events Calendar

Logistics for planning things to do for an excellent day (or week, or month) in and around Lisbon, in English. ATTENTION: Most of the top museums in Lisbon have closed due to the attempt to contain the Coronavirus. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events until April 3 and possibly beyond, so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on just in case.

MONTHLY | ACTIVISM | Extinction Rebellion Lisbon Assembly | Intendente | FREE
Apr 3 @ 18:00
MONTHLY | ACTIVISM | Extinction Rebellion Lisbon Assembly | Intendente | FREE @ BaseFUT | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Do you want to not be extinct? Well then, my friend, you must rebel!
But before you rebel, you must assemble.

Extinction Rebellion Lisboa describe themselves as a “nonviolent rebellion against the governments of the world for climate and ecological justice.”

Here’s what they say about Friday night:
“XR Lisboa is proud to try to be a horizontal, free, diverse, courageous, and democratic movement. For this, we hold open monthly General Assemblies (GA) in which the working groups present their work and discuss matters of general importance for the movement.
According to the vote at the General Assembly of January 17, 2020, the AGs of XR Lisbon will now be held always on the first Friday of each month, at 6 pm for those who have never come to an AG XR Lisbon and at 7 pm for those who already came.
WE ARE WAITING FOR YOU!”

If you’ve already got plans for Friday night, you can still rebel against your extinction by sending XR Lisboa an email to [email protected] .

Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE
Apr 4 @ 10:00 – 19:00
Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This is probably the most relaxed craft market in town, thanks to its position in the tranquil and beautifully cared-for Jardim da Estrela. It’s also surprisingly diverse and offers more than your average home-made soaps and ankle bracelets. We can’t guarantee she’ll be there every time, but we once saw a woman here selling one-of-a-kind, perfectly creepy oversized papier-mâché dolls, for example.

The first weekend of every month, except January.

CANCELLED | WEEKLY | FARMER'S MARKET | "LX Rural" at LX Factory | Alcantara | FREE @ LX Factory | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Eating at McDonald’s does not make you a bad person. Your ancestors have done it for generations, and you can always opt for just lettuce. But sometimes you just want something a little more natural and less controversial, if only to avoid those awkward dinner-party conversations.
In comes LX Rural, the new farmer’s market brought to you by LX Factory, the hippest (or freshest?) mini-Brooklyn this side of the Atlantic.
Here’s what they tell us:
“From the countryside to the city, from generation to generation, a rare market emerges. A market of freshness, quality and value.
Wake up early on Sunday and bring the family to the Rural Lx!
Come and meet the producers of traditional, sustainable and biological agriculture. Savor the products of the time. Come and taste the homemade bread, the preserves, the fresh vegetables, the sausages (thank Jesus!), the honey … and take the tradition and art to your table!
Indulge yourself in this market of colors and flavors of the field!”
The market is open to producers from all over Portugal, and is sure to make your Sunday hangover, if not better, healthier.

MARKET | Antiques | Estrela | FREE
Apr 18 @ 09:00 – 18:00
MARKET | Antiques | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela

Antiques of all kinds, some crafts and artisanal goods, both edible and wearable, all in a get-away-from-it-all setting.

Everyone’s selling antiques in Lisbon these days, and the market held in Jardim da Estrela every third Saturday carries much the same as many others: old brass handles, pieces of chandeliers, those African statuettes that no one wants, and the occasional treasure. Like most antique markets, this one also has a decent selection of artisanal jewelry and some food. What makes it special is the setting: this quiet park in a residential area of the city is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Feira da Ladra or anything in the center. There’s a cafe right next to it if you need some liquid courage.

In the summer of 2020, the Primavera Sound music festival celebrates its 20th anniversary.

“NOS Primavera Sound, the festival’s Portuguese counterpart, takes place in Porto one week after Primavera Sound Barcelona. Since 2012 it has been extending the spirit of the festival whilst consolidating itself as an important event on the European circuit. Artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Sigur Rós, Patti Smith, Blur, Daniel Johnston, Rosalía, A$AP Rocky, and Lorde, among others, have already performed in the Parque de Cidade site in the Portuguese city.”

Jun 20 all-day
to Jun 28 | MUSIC FESTIVAL | Rock in Rio Lisboa 2020 | Bela Vista | @ Parque da Bela Vista | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

One thing that Lisbon does well is music festivals. Summer after summer, the biggest names in rock and roll keep landing in the 2020 Green Capital of the World to do what they do best. That is, to rock.

Rock in Rio Lisboa 2020 is a good example.
Among the dozens of heavy-hitters rocking the greenery of Parque da Bela Vista for two weekends this June are household names like the Black Eyed Peas, Foo Fighters, The National, Duran Duran, Liam Gallagher, A-Ha, Xutos & Pontapés (they’re a Portuguese household name), Bush, Post Malone, and more.

MARKET | Antiques | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela

Antiques of all kinds, some crafts and artisanal goods, both edible and wearable, all in a get-away-from-it-all setting.

Everyone’s selling antiques in Lisbon these days, and the market held in Jardim da Estrela every third Saturday carries much the same as many others: old brass handles, pieces of chandeliers, those African statuettes that no one wants, and the occasional treasure. Like most antique markets, this one also has a decent selection of artisanal jewelry and some food. What makes it special is the setting: this quiet park in a residential area of the city is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Feira da Ladra or anything in the center. There’s a cafe right next to it if you need some liquid courage.

CANCELLED | WEEKLY | FARMER'S MARKET | "LX Rural" at LX Factory | Alcantara | FREE @ LX Factory | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Eating at McDonald’s does not make you a bad person. Your ancestors have done it for generations, and you can always opt for just lettuce. But sometimes you just want something a little more natural and less controversial, if only to avoid those awkward dinner-party conversations.
In comes LX Rural, the new farmer’s market brought to you by LX Factory, the hippest (or freshest?) mini-Brooklyn this side of the Atlantic.
Here’s what they tell us:
“From the countryside to the city, from generation to generation, a rare market emerges. A market of freshness, quality and value.
Wake up early on Sunday and bring the family to the Rural Lx!
Come and meet the producers of traditional, sustainable and biological agriculture. Savor the products of the time. Come and taste the homemade bread, the preserves, the fresh vegetables, the sausages (thank Jesus!), the honey … and take the tradition and art to your table!
Indulge yourself in this market of colors and flavors of the field!”
The market is open to producers from all over Portugal, and is sure to make your Sunday hangover, if not better, healthier.

Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This is probably the most relaxed craft market in town, thanks to its position in the tranquil and beautifully cared-for Jardim da Estrela. It’s also surprisingly diverse and offers more than your average home-made soaps and ankle bracelets. We can’t guarantee she’ll be there every time, but we once saw a woman here selling one-of-a-kind, perfectly creepy oversized papier-mâché dolls, for example.

The first weekend of every month, except January.
