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 mid-May 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.

Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE
Jul 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.

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.

Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro is a household name in Portugal. He was a man of many talents and, even though he died 115 years ago, his work and influence on the country remain ever-present. One example of said influence is Zé Povinho, the vaguely familiar fat little dude on the left.

This summer, the museum bearing Bordalo’s name wants to help you fight those pandemic blues, free of charge, with what they’re calling Terapêuticas Bordalianas.

Here’s what they say:
“The Therapeutic Bordalianas are free half-hour-long visits to the Museum Bordalo Pinheiro designed to introduce visitors to the Bordaliano world.
We choose one piece or theme per day, between Tuesday and Friday, always at 15h, and then we invite the visitor to explore the Museum freely.

Wednesdays – Manueline carving and popular culture
Thursdays – Mesa-Posta plate and naturalism

MARKET | Antiques | Estrela | FREE
Jul 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.

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 @ 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.

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.
