Vila Vita Christmas Market

The magic of an authentic Christmas Food Market

The Christmas festivities start at Vila Vita Biergarten in Porches on Thursday, December 8, with the Vila Vita Christmas Food Market.

Filled with entertainment and good food, the event takes place until Sunday, December 11, from 1pm to 8pm each day, with free entrance to the public.

Inspired by the magic of Northern European Christmas markets, the Christmas Food Market recreates a very authentic and cosy atmosphere with its wooden alpine huts scattered around the area, offering tasty gastronomic delicacies, such as traditional raclette, Bavarian specialities, homemade sausages from the Biergarten butcher, churros and the traditional mulled wine (glühwein).

As a prelude to Christmas, the whole family can get into the festive mood with delicious food at the sound of live music, and get inspired by the festive shopping suggestions, such as Christmas decorations, gourmet products, flower arrangements, among others, while the youngest ones can enjoy the children’s play area with a bouncy castle, face painting, marshmallows and other activities especially designed for the occasion.

Organisers promise “four days of Christmas celebration with family and friends in the warm and unique atmosphere of the most authentic German beer garden in Portugal”.
