The GuestHouseLisbon suggests some events of the Lisbon celebrations 2012 for this coming week:Date: 01 June Event: Fairs Location: Various places
June is the month of the Lisbon celebrations that take the city with color and fun. The popular parties are a moment of great entertainment that the “alfacinhas” (how people from Lisbon are nicknamed) offer to the city. The music, the neighbourhood fado, the grilled sardines, the grilled smoked sausages and the “caldo verde” (cabagge soup very popular!) will be a strong presence again this year. The parties will take the neighbourhoods and Lisbon will be more alive than ever.
Date: 2 June Event: Fado in the City, photos by José Maria Frade Location: São Jorge Castle, and Largo Chafariz de Dentro (across the Fado Museum)
Fado in the City photo exhibition, by José Maria Frade. In this exhibition the photographer presents a selection of photos from his last twelve years work where the main character is the Lisbon songs universe. The photos show singers and the captured moments reflect the ambience of the Fado as musical style and experience.Date: Friday, 8 June Event: Contest Exhibition: Sardines, Lisbon celebrations 2012 Location: Millennium BCP Foundation – Archeological Place, Rua Augusta
The sardines are also part of the Lisbon story. Already between the I and V century d.C. the Olisipo industries produced valuable fish preserves with spices which were exported to all the Roman world. This exhibition gathers a selection of more than two hundred sardines that are on the contest Sardines, Lisbon celebrations 2012. This contest has been developed by the Lisbon celebrations organizers to find the campaign image for this year’s celebrations.
