The Portuguese capital, Lisbon, is hosting this month another edition of Feira Vizinha (Neighbours’ fair, in a free translation to English). Due to bad weather conditions, the event initially scheduled for May 7 will now take place on Saturday, May 14.
The event, organised by local association Rés do Chão, combines a street community market with cultural activities, including musical performances.
According to the organisers, the event is aimed at “valuing and revitalising the existing commerce in one of Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhoods,” privileging the exhibiting and sale of products from local traders.
The programme of Saturday’s event — set out by “the neighbours” — includes a workshop on postal art, a session about “the new vintage photography,” a guided tour and several musical performances throughout the day, from 10 am to 8 pm.
The fair is held every two months at Largo Dr. António de Sousa de Macedo, at the end of Calçada do Combro.
