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 re-opened with new hours and regulations. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on — just in case.

to Aug 9 | LIVE MUSIC | Jazz 2020 at the Gulbenkian | Praça da Espanha | 10€ @ Gulbenkian | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The Gulbenkian has been a Lisbon staple for cool stuff before, during, and after the first wave. For the next two weekends, they invite you to forget your troubles with some live local jazz in its historical amphitheater.

Here’s what they say:
“It will come as no surprise to anyone that the current pandemic that haunts the world has very direct effects on circulation between countries. The movements, which a short time ago were limited to an almost formality to cross continents, are no longer a certainty. These constraints on the way we lived carelessly until very recently, invite us to look around and take more time to focus on everything that is close to us. If the moment forces us to turn inward, let us learn from that moment. Hence the idea of ​​the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation was born to open its Open Air Amphitheater to a careful selection of cutting edge jazz and improvised music born in Portugal.”

Tickets: 10€ (with various packages available).
