Columbus Festival
From September 17th to 19th, the Island of Porto Santo hosts another edition of the Columbus Festival, featuring a set of activities that seek to recall the epic Portuguese Discoveries and the historical period in which the Genoese navigator lived in the island.
One of the highlights of the event is definitely the arrival of Columbus and his crew on board of the Nau Santa Maria, historical parade and welcoming reception.
Beyond Columbus disembarkation in Porto Santo’s bay, the programme of the event also includes street entertainment, crafts, circus arts, historical recreations/theatrical performances, skills’ games, military garrison, weaponry training, acrobatics and juggling and medieval dances, offering continuous varied entertainment annually attracting many visitors.
