Hi everyone. Today´s post is about Folkfaro, the International Folklore Festival that every year animates Faro´s marina, and which I like very much. This festival first edition was in 2003. This year it takes place every night, from 16th to 24th August.
This festival is free, and I think it´s a great choice for a cultural, frugal, night program that pleases the whole family. The festival organization provides chairs near the stage, which are free to use. At the same time you can find an art and crafts exposition next to the marina.
This year, Folkfaro includes groups from: Arménia - Sarga Folk Ensemble, Bulgary- Folk Dance Ensemble Detstvo, Colômbia - Fundación Artística y Cultural Imagen y Expresion, Holand - Paloina Dance Group, Índia - Jugnu Bhangra Group, Quénia - African Tumbas and several from Portugal - Grupo Etnográfico de Danças e Cantares da Nazaré, Rancho Regional “Recordar é Viver” de Espinho, Rancho Folclórico da Romeira, Grupo Folclórico de Vila Nova de Sande, Rancho Folclórico da Arpi, Rancho Folclórico da Luz de Tavira, Grupo Folclórico de Faro.
If you´d like to see a bit of this festival, I found last year´s edition video, check it out:
