Algarve Events July 2015
July Events Highlights: The first of our two peak summer months is here and it goes without saying that our Algarve July events calendar is chock-a-block!
There are summer programmes in lots of the main resorts, with one of the highlights of the “Verão em Tavira” programme being a concert by Ana Moura and Rui Massena 18th and 29th July. Sun-drenched days will be perfect for the Alameda Beer Festival in Faro 3rd to 5th July, where there are over 120 types of beer as well as cooking shows and concerts. Another not-to-be-missed festival is the Medronho Festival and Traditional Cured Ham Fair in Monchique 24th to 27th July, with four days of drinking, eating and celebrating the traditions of the Serra de Monchique. From 16th to 19th July it’s all about the motorbikes in Faro, when the Algarve’s capital hosts one of the biggest and most legendary motorbike meets in Europe; great concerts and entertainment too!
Looking forward to August there are two of the Algarve’s most famous festivals taking place, “Festival do Marisco” (Seafood Festival) in Olhão 10th to15th and “Festival da Sardinha” (Sardine Festival) in Portimão 12th to 16th August.
