The time has come to talk about the best events in Porto this June 2016! We like to be active and pro-active all the time, so as the month of May is slowly drawing to an end, we are all eager to welcome the first days of summer in our very own favorite town: Oporto, the center of the thriving and sunny Northern Portugal.
June has much enthusiasm and entertainment in store for all of us. The first days of summer are as welcome as they are anticipated, since tourists from all corners of the world are starting to flood the port (and the airport) of Porto. By the way, if you need a Porto airport transfer or if you want to book your Porto car hire for the holiday, now would be the time to do it, because June is a busy month already!
Back to the events this coming month, though: here are some of them!
The month begins on the sweet and melancholy rhythms of Fado music, as on the 3rd and 4th of June 2016 we find ourselves in Ribeira of Porto at the greatest Portuguese Fado festival, Caixa Ribeira. Antonio Zambujo and Simone de Oliveira are just two of the most illustrious names among the 40+ artists who are scheduled to perform on the 10 stages set in Ribeira.
Next comes the Serralves Festival, between the 4th and 5th of June 2016. The museum and park of Serralves are getting ready to amaze us with another annual cultural marathon, featuring music, performing arts, photography and alternative workshops.
And of course, the events calendar this month ends on June 23rd with the greatest festival in Porto: the Sao Joao Festival. The sound of music, the scent of barbecue and the fiery color of fireworks will fill the streets of Porto. Join in!
