Portimão is set to host another ‘Lota Cool Market’ from July 18 to 20. This year, the event’s theme is ‘California Dreaming’ and is inspired by a trip of one of the organisers to USA’s ‘Golden State’, which was filled with sunshine, beachgoing, bonfire parties and surfing.
But while the theme may be American-inspired, the event, now in its sixth edition, aims to showcase the “coolest and latest trends of Portugal’s contemporary handicrafts, design and food”. Over 40 exhibitors from all over Portugal will be taking part.
The event also includes live music and DJ sets as well as trampolines, floats and a climbing wall.
The Lota Cool Market also has an environmentally-friendly ethos and organisers are asking visitors to reuse their plastic cups at the event and recycle all their rubbish.
The event takes place near the old fish market building (Antiga Lota de Pesca) between 6pm and 1am. Admission is free.
