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.

“There’s just something visceral about moving a puppet frame by frame. There’s a magical quality about it. Maybe you can get smoother animation with computers, but there’s a dimension and emotional quality to this kind of animation that fits these characters and this story.”
Tim Burton.

You’ve probably heard of Tim. Chances are you even love at least one of his films.
Having started his career at Disney during the last millennium, Tim has dabbled in live-action, stop-motion, and 3D animation, developing an original and memorable style that has yet to be copied successfully.

Through April 19th, the most underrated museum in Lisbon, aka the Museu da Marioneta, is proud to present “Tim Burton – The Animation Puppets,” an exhibition that brings you face to face with the original drawings, puppets, models, drafts, and character studies used in the production of classics like Mars Attaks!, Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie, and more.

Bring the kids, and/or the kid in you.

PAUSED – Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka’s Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE
Mar 31 @ 19:30 – 23:00
PAUSED - Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka's Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Open mics are traditionally a sh.tshow.
But the host of this one, Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka, however, is a local legend, a musically speaking jack of all trades, a semi-god among men, and an overall nice fella. And Claudia — office-worker turned badass bar-tender/-owner, pro at making anyone feel at home with her smile, and woman behind low-key chill spot Camones Cinebar — is the yin to Shaka’s yang.

Their bi-weekly “open mic for all arts, all ages” stands out. Here, people actually come for the mic part. It is still open mic, which means that most of the art… leaves much to be desired. But at least someone’s listening. Every other Tuesday throughout the year.

NOTE: If you want to perform (or just get a seat), get there and/or sign up early. It’s usually a full house by 20h.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h30.

All ages and art forms welcome.

FREE ENTRY.

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.

Apr 5 @ 10:30 – 17:00
Monthly | STAR GAZING | Half Price at the Planetarium | Belém | 2.50€ @ Planetário Caloeste Gulbenkian | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The Gulbenkian Planetarium in Belém invites you to view your insignificance in the face of the universe for half the regular price the first Sunday of every month, and for free if you are between the ages of 4 and 12 or older than 64.
Go enjoy some cosmic science and be humbled. NOTE: The Cosmos ticket office is closed for lunch from 12 to 13h30.
More deets here.
NOTE II: Take headphones with you if you plan to listen to the show in anything other than Portuguese. The planetarium supplies them, but they’re mighty uncomfortable.

And here’s an intergalactic throwback.

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.

Apr 18 @ 10:00 – 18:00
CLOSED UNTIL APR 3 | to Apr 19 | PUPPET EXHIBIT | Tim Burton: The Animation Puppets | Santos | FREE-2€ @ Museu da Marioneta | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“There’s just something visceral about moving a puppet frame by frame. There’s a magical quality about it. Maybe you can get smoother animation with computers, but there’s a dimension and emotional quality to this kind of animation that fits these characters and this story.”
Tim Burton.

You’ve probably heard of Tim. Chances are you even love at least one of his films.
Having started his career at Disney during the last millennium, Tim has dabbled in live-action, stop-motion, and 3D animation, developing an original and memorable style that has yet to be copied successfully.

Through April 19th, the most underrated museum in Lisbon, aka the Museu da Marioneta, is proud to present “Tim Burton – The Animation Puppets,” an exhibition that brings you face to face with the original drawings, puppets, models, drafts, and character studies used in the production of classics like Mars Attaks!, Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie, and more.

Bring the kids, and/or the kid in you.

Museum hours:
Tuesday-Sunday, 10h-18h.

ENTRY: 2€ (free for kids under 5yo).

Here’s the trailer for our personal favorite.

Apr 28 @ 19:30 – 23:00
PAUSED - Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka's Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Open mics are traditionally a sh.tshow.
But the host of this one, Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka, however, is a local legend, a musically speaking jack of all trades, a semi-god among men, and an overall nice fella. And Claudia — office-worker turned badass bar-tender/-owner, pro at making anyone feel at home with her smile, and woman behind low-key chill spot Camones Cinebar — is the yin to Shaka’s yang.

Their bi-weekly “open mic for all arts, all ages” stands out. Here, people actually come for the mic part. It is still open mic, which means that most of the art… leaves much to be desired. But at least someone’s listening. Every other Tuesday throughout the year.

NOTE: If you want to perform (or just get a seat), get there and/or sign up early. It’s usually a full house by 20h.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h30.

All ages and art forms welcome.

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.

Go enjoy some cosmic science and be humbled. NOTE: The Cosmos ticket office is closed for lunch from 12 to 13h30.
More deets here.
NOTE II: Take headphones with you if you plan to listen to the show in anything other than Portuguese. The planetarium supplies them, but they’re mighty uncomfortable.

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.
