Torres Vedras Carnival

Friday, February 9th - Wednesday, February 14th


The Most Portuguese Carnival in Portugal. This is how one of the most anticipated and popular events in Torres Vedras is known. The city’s ex-libris takes place every year with great fanfare, welcoming tens of thousands of people and there is no one who can deny its originality and revelry.

With the first event taking place in 1912, the Torres Vedras Carnival is driven by pride in remaining faithful to Portuguese traditions.

If you have a visit planned to one of the most iconic Carnivals in the country, these are some of the points you need to know to stay up to date with the event like a local:

  • Dress Up, like the whole family
  • Get a ticket earlier in the day, if you go to the paid events
  • prepare to stand for few hours looking at the amazing groups of people dressed up with incredible themed costumes: to avoid children getting bored, be sure to bring serpentine and confetti to play.
  • be ready to see most men dressed like women
