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.

FILM AND TV SHOWS | Netflix Party | FREE @ Englewood | Colorado | United States

According to professional medical consensus worldwide, Netflix and chill, for those of us that are single, is now a no-no for the foreseeable future. So, hang in there, tiger…

In the meantime, if you’re lucky enough to have wifi, a Netflix account, and a friend or two with the same, then Netflix now offers you the option of having said friends talk over your next online binge session, free of charge.
Here’s what they say about Netflix Party:
“Netflix Party synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to your favorite Netflix shows.”

MUSIC | AtYourHome | FREE (Donations Welcome)

Music is life.
Everybody knows that.
But whenever the proverbial sh.t hits the proverbial fan, it seems that toilet paper becomes life. So musicians get hit pretty hard. And the fans get hit too…

If you are a fan of music and have enough toilet paper, “online music magazine curated by musicholics” Where The Music Meets has a nifty alternative for going to a live gig. They call it At Your Home, and here’s what they say:

“Due to this situation, many musicians and music promoters are struggling to make their living. The amount of canceled shows and festivals drains life from the music industry but also from live music consumers.

Where the Music Meets launches At Your Home platform in an attempt to give some love back to the musicians and at the same time helping to fight the cause. Every day we will broadcast live music shows recorded directly from musicians houses. No matter the technology. No matter the production. No matter the genre. No matter the projection of each act. We are all in this together.

Donations will be accepted during the shows and directed to the artists themselves. Also, a portion of those donations will be given to Project Open Air, to help in the matter of working on medical devices battling the COVID-19 virus (such as open-source ventilators), in orfer to have a fast and easy solution that can be reproduced and assembled locally worldwide.

Shows will happen every day until we get out of this situation.”

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

CANCELLED - to Mar 30 | FILM CYCLE | Silent Cinema at Casa da Achada | Mouraria | FREE @ Casa da Achada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If there’s any hope left for Lisbon in the face of genocidal gentrification, rampant inequality, unintentional rape by tourists and landlords, and general good old-fashioned capitalist decay, that hope is, and has been for a thousand years, the neighborhood of Mouraria.

And tucked away in the seldom-accessed-by-tuk-tuk heart of this haven of character is Casa da Achada, a non-profit cultural organization opened a decade ago to honor and continue the legacy of local artist, writer, critic, and teacher of Portuguese Mário Dionísio.

One of the many cool things the “House of the Found” does is free silent oldie film screenings every Monday night. They’re usually preceded by a guest speaker, and have Portuguese subtitles.

*The socialist fun commences at 21h30, and seating is limited.

**Make sure to bundle up this time of year as, due to capitalism, there is no heating.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

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.

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

VISITING HOURS:

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!”

Music is life.
Everybody knows that.
But whenever the proverbial sh.t hits the proverbial fan, it seems that toilet paper becomes life. So musicians get hit pretty hard. And the fans get hit too…

If you are a fan of music and have enough toilet paper, “online music magazine curated by musicholics” Where The Music Meets has a nifty alternative for going to a live gig. They call it At Your Home, and here’s what they say:

“Due to this situation, many musicians and music promoters are struggling to make their living. The amount of canceled shows and festivals drains life from the music industry but also from live music consumers.

Where the Music Meets launches At Your Home platform in an attempt to give some love back to the musicians and at the same time helping to fight the cause. Every day we will broadcast live music shows recorded directly from musicians houses. No matter the technology. No matter the production. No matter the genre. No matter the projection of each act.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.
