All Saints Fair in Silves from 31.10 – 04.11.2018

Like every year, the All Saints’ Fair takes place in Silves from October 31 to November 4; Sítio do Encalhe (parking behind the castle and next to the supermarket Minipreco). In typical Portuguese fairgrounds there are all kinds of household goods, clothing, shoes and toys, as well as nuts, popcorn, crepes, hotdogs and grilled octopus to buy. Of course, the rides are not missing, as it is a real hype. The fair has been held since 1492, and Silves received the “Letter of Fairs” from King João II. It is a tradition that is deeply rooted in the history of Silves.
