International Festival of Popular Arts and Traditions of Matosinhos

Festarte 2018
PROGRAM

In its 21st edition, the FESTARTE makes of Matosinhos a center where the ethnographic, gastronomic and cultural traditions from human communities from different continents will converge. The groups that visit us in this edition arrive from Turkey, Russia, India, Spain, Colombia, Guinea Bissau and Peru.  


Like the late Dr. Carlos Morais said, the contest “will allow to take Matosinhos to all corners of the world and, simultaneously, to make known to the population of the county the difference and the exoticism of other cultures.”
