to Sept 29 | MUSIC FESTIVAL | Feira da Luz | Carnide | FREE
“Luz” means “light” in Portuguese.
Every year in September a bunch of locals in the neighborhood of Carnide take part in a pilgrimage to the 400-year-old Luz Church (aka the Shrine of Our Lady of Light).
Feira da Luz (“The Fair of Light”) began as an extension of this.
Today, in the words of the organizers, Feira da Luz is “a platform for promoting the country’s best national music.”
A free live concert on Saturday, and then every Friday, Saturday, and one Sunday through September. This year includes some big names.
