Algarve Events October 2015
Not only is October a wonderful month for the weather, but we’ve also got a whole hosts of Algarve events to be enjoyed!
Kicking off the month is the largest birdwatching event in Portugal, the Sagres Birdwatching Festival. From 1st - 4th October, the crossing of migratory birds towards the warm lands of Africa is celebrated with more than 160 different activities, such as field trips, boat trips, short-courses, environmental education workshops, bird ringing and monitoring sessions and much more.
We’ve got plenty of music too, with Tavira leading the way with 30 minutes of live Fado music at intervals every day in the street and there’s “Music in the Churches” in different churches throughout the month. The big concert of the month is by Stacey Kent, one of the world's most acclaimed jazz singers, who is performing at the Figuras Theatre in Faro 31st October.
11th October one of our favourite charity events, Mamamaratona 15, takes place in in Portimão. Participants can walk or run across different distances with all ages raising money for Associação Oncológica do Algarve (AOA), the association for cancer patients in the Algarve.
The famous Portugal Masters is held at the Oceânico Victoria golf course in Vilamoura 15-18th October and as always the tournament will host the best European golfers with golf fans flooding in to watch the action!
