In the last few months, I’ve been searching for kids and parents friendly event in Lisbon for the facebook group Lisbon Foreign Parents.  When you are new in town and you even have children can be difficult to find things to do with them, especially on the weekend.

There are a few websites where it’s possible to find these pieces of information but most of the time they are not updated or they are missing some cool stuff.

So I decided to post here on my blog a personal selection of the events I find interesting or peculiar,  for kids but also for adults, that so much deserve some “you” moments from time to time.

The selection is divided into categories and all events have links to buy tickets or get more info.
