Events to attend in Lisbon this April 2016

Let’s agree on one thing from the start: the capital city of Portugal is worth visiting on any season. Nevertheless, there is something optimistic and beautiful about spring that makes it ideal. And while you’re staying in town, you might like to know about some of the best events to attend in Lisbon this April 2016.

Maybe the most prominent event in April is the Peixe em Lisboa (in translation: Lisbon Fish & Flavors). Scheduled for April 7th to 17th 2016, the event is the greatest seafood festival that celebrates the traditional Portuguese specialty: fish. It will be organized at the Patio da Gale and among the highlights of the event, you can expect cooking demonstrations and tasting sessions, all in a traditional, warm atmosphere.

To end the month of April in “Lisboa”, you have an open invitation to attend the Indie Lisboa, an international film festival scheduled to occupy the last days of the month, from the 20th until the 1st of May. There will be a national competition, an international contest, a section for “brand new” filmmakers, one for children (Indie Junior), as well as special screenings and music.

Are you one of those people who just can’t get enough of music? Then the Belem Music Festival is just the thing for you. From the 22nd of April until the 24th, prepare for a three-day music marathon. What to expect? Concerts that combine the elegance of classical music with the enthusiasm of modern rhythms. The setting is beautiful as well, so you can admire the beautiful Tagus river nearby.

If you need transfers from Lisbon airport to city of Lisbon, be sure to book in advance, because the second month of the season promises a lot of entertainment, but a lot of hustle and bustle, especially in view of the coming gourmet event, Peixe em Lisboa.
