Walk & Art Fest returns to Barão de São João

This is the 5th edition of the festival, which features 85 free activities spread over three days.

Hikers and art lovers are gathering on November 4, 5 and 6 for the 5th edition of the «Barão de São João – Walk & Art Fest». The three-day event offers a diverse programme of free activities on the outskirts of Lagos, designed for participants of all ages and interests.

The programme includes 85 activities spread over the three days of the event, including hikes, mountain bike trails, activities for children, wellness activities and various workshops.

As in past editions, the event will feature a collective art exhibition of 17 pieces by 16 local artists. The works are dotted along a 3.5 km route, starting at the Barão de São João Cultural Centre, which runs along paths between the forest perimeter and the village streets.

This year’s edition features a new space in the village centre. The “Barão ConVida” is where various activities will take place, such as poetry, documentary screening, cyanotype and stamping workshops, yoga and meditation.

There will be entertainment on Saturday evening, with a concert by Gustavo Miranda and José Martin, the “Vizinhos”, in an Afro-Latin American fusion.

Walk & Art Fest is the ideal festival for those looking for physical activity combined with nature discovery. The proposed walks – of different distances and levels of difficulty – address different themes and travel through various locations in the parish.

The programme also includes various activities dedicated to the younger generations, such as yoga, a treasure hunt, land art and a short family walk.

The 5th edition of the «Barão de São João – Walk & Art Fest» is a collaboration between the local artistic community, with the joint organisation of the Lagos Municipality and the Almargem Association, and is based in the Barão de São João Cultural Centre.

The full programme can be found on the website. Bookings on the website are now closed but can be made in location at the Barão de São João Cultural Centre.
