Walk & Art Fest - Barão de São João - Lagos

WALK & ART FEST

Barão de São João wait for you!

From the 4th to the 6th of November, the village of Barão de São João, in the municipality of Lagos, will once again host the festival that combines hiking with art.

The program is long and diverse, with 85 free activities for all tastes: long, short and themed walks (geology, botany, bird watching, history, drawing...), workshops, activities for children and families, mountain biking and wellness activities that invite you to relax and enjoy nature.

In this 5th edition, some novelties stand out, such as the poetry soiree "Poetry is unstable equilibrium", the screening of the documentary "To Make a Living" - Stories of Women's Work Life", and the workshops on "Introduction to Non-Violent Communication".

The 5th edition once again counts on the mobilization of the local artistic community, which comes together to provide visitors with an artistic immersion in this village with such peculiar characteristics.

Take the opportunity to visit the Installation Art created especially for this event. 16 local artists created 17 unique pieces, which can be visited on a route of about 3.5 km, along the village of Barão de São João and the woods.

Make your registration! Barão de São João awaits you.
