My dear August...

Meu querido mês de agosto…

Heat, sunshine and days at the beach or by the swimming pool, this is how we are doing in the Algarve! And as promised here are our suggestions for the month of August which for most of the people means summer holidays!

EXHIBITIONS

August in Albufeira is a very busy month. We highlight the “28th February 1969, Memories of the Earthquake” Exhibition taking place at the Municipal Archeology Museum from August the 1st to August the 17th, and also “Pax.02 - The Flight of Pax” painting Exhibition by Débora Pax that will take place at the Pintor Samora Barros Art Gallery from August the 3rd to August the 31st.

COMMEMORATIONS

Also, on the 20th of August Albufeira celebrates the Day of the Municipality Commemorations with a concert by Bonnie Taylor and some firework Display at Pescadores Square.

SARDINE FESTIVAL

And as the days on the beach and by the pool whet your appetite, from the 8th till the 10th of August the 22nd Olhos de Água Sardine Festival takes place at Pescadores Square and that can also be a great choice for an evening full of entertainment, petiscos and grilled sardines.
