Event Details

Albufeira is famous for its New Year's Eve celebrations and this year all the stops have been pulled out for 'Albufeira Carpe Nox 2023'.

On the 31st Dec. Albufeira will host a multisensory show that will involve the various natural elements of Praia dos Pescadores - the beach, the ocean and the vast winter sky. The event will feature pyrotechnics, a skydiving light and fire show that promises to be absolutely mesmerising,  fabulous concerts, and of course, amazing fireworks, shooting into the sky above the ocean.

New Year's Eve 2019/2020 saw over 180,000 people party in Albufeira, celebrating the very first edition of Albufeira Carpe Nox. After an enforced pause, the party returns, bigger and even better than before!

Albufeira Carpe Nox 2023 programme - New Year's Eve
A massive stage will be rise upon the sands of Praia dos Pescadores for the night of December 31st. with laser and light towers to create the mood.
