what are the dates of festas de san antonio this year
The Best Answer
Answered by Filipa , Lisboa, Portugal
Hello! The San Antonio Holyday is on June the 13th. However, there is also another holyday very nearby which is June the 10th. This year, the 10th is a Friday. So if you're planning a trip to Lisbon around this time, I would advise you to be here from the 10th onwards, at the least. Also, throughout the month of June there are lots of events and cultural activities in an initiative promoted by Lisbon’s' city hall called "Festas de Lisboa" or Lisbon Festivities. The evening of the 12th is the most significant day of these festivities, when all people from and around Lisbon gather in the typical neighborhoods of the city. The streets close to traffic and are filled with people dancing, the traditional hawkers selling food (sardines & bred) and beverages. Besides the loud music that comes from the hawkers trailers, there are also live bands almost in every corner. It’s very, very fun and an experienced not to be missed. I strongly advise you to come and see for yourself. If I could help you with anything else, please be free to write me back.

This year, the celebrations will be the entire weekend prior to June 13th. It's usually on the night of the 12th, but considering June10th is national holiday, we can expect Lisbon to be very lively for the whole weekend
