Alcoutim receives sixth Partridge Fair

Preparations are underway for the sixth edition of the Partridge Fair, which takes place at the Pavilhão José Rosa Pereira in Martim Longo, Alcoutim, on October 13 and 14.

With a varied programme, this year’s fair offers a range of activities, including archery, traditional games, seminars, falconry demonstrations and street entertainment throughout.

Aiming to promote the council as a privileged hunting area, particularly for the red-legged partridge, the fair also features a variety of hunting-related items, gun dog shows, and regional handicraft and food.

The fair opens at 11am on Saturday (with activities taking place beforehand) and 10am on Sunday, alongside a march through the village.
