Festas de Lisboa ’12 - Arraiais

June is the month of the “Festas de Lisboa” and it is also the time of the year where the activity of the associations of each district reaches its peak. The “Arraiais Populares” are the highlight of what the several associations offer to Lisbon.

With the theme of popular saints, the associations of the city organize, in the public spaces of their neighborhoods and communities, gatherings between real local people and their visitors and tourists.

Popular music, “Fado Castiço”, the grilled sardines, grilled chorizo and vegetable soup “Caldo Verde” are always present in these festivities, ex-libris of the city. The party settles in Lisbon's neighborhoods and invites you to experience Lisbon.
