Portimão Sardine Festival

Algarve Zona Ribeirinha de Portimão Portimão

The most famous annual sardine festival in the Algarve is back! Live music, entertainment, plenty of fresh fish and sardines galore!  Portimão's Sardine Festival is a must-do. From 30th July to 4th August 2024.

Sardines have been a part of the tradition and culture of the Algarve for many years and this little fish has remained a firm favourite with locals and visitors to the region - grilled to perfection over charcoal and eaten with Portuguese bread and a fresh salad - delicious!

Many restaurants in the Algarve will have sardines on the menu but the best time to eat sardines is in August, and especially during the annual Sardine Festival in Portimão.

This year the festival opens on 30th July and runs until 4th. August.  If you want to sample local sardines, this is the place. The sardines are freshly caught and at their best at this time of the year. Plus there is live music every evening with a great line up of bands. The full programme will be announced soon.
