Hello dear reader, let’s officially welcome the month of October! This is a new monthly post that I plan to be happening on monthly basis and will include suggestions of things happening during the following month.

This means I am now filling the Lisbon with Kids Agenda with many events at once, and at the beginning of the month, so families can have an overview of what’s happening in town ahead of time: I have been a bit busy for family-related reasons, and I am only being able to post this now! Sorry guys!

Of course, I might add events which I get to discover along the month! The next roundup will be all about Christmas, but you can already find one or two events starting in November! Have fun!

  1. Feira do Mocho is a fair dedicated to local brands and crafters: check their special Christmas Edition this Saturday at Jardim do Santos.
  2. Other markets happening this weekend; Portugal Real Market is happening in Principe Real main square, where you can also do some organic grocery shopping at the weekly Farmer Market; Hype Market open at Hotel Roma.
