Lisbon is a vibrant and dynamic city with something for everyone, whether you’re into fairs, cinema, or food events. Let’s take a look at events and activities in Lisbon this week, between September 18 and 24.

Feira da Luz

Feira da Luz is an annual fair in Carnide, known not only for its musical artists, workshops, and more. However, one of our favorite things about this fair is the artisanal products available. You will find all kinds of handmade products, including beautiful plates, cups, and mugs at incredible prices. 

This week, the Feira da Luz is going on from September 20 to 24. On Sunday, Portuguese “popular” music artist José Malhoa will be performing.
