On the weekend of 20, 21 and 22 December, Christmas spirit invades the VILA VITA Biergarten in Porches with the VILA VITA Christmas Food Market.

Over three days, from 1pm to 8pm, visitors can celebrate the best of national and international flavours, wrapped in the magic of the Northern European Christmas markets.

In an authentic and wintry atmosphere, the cosy surroundings recreated by eight wooden alpine huts promise to warm spirits, offering festive shopping suggestions such as Christmas hampers, gourmet products from Herdade dos Grous and Quinta de Valbom, hand-crafted wreaths and other decorative items, all to the lively sound of the Os Compota (Funk Family) and the Ricardo Sousa Band, at 3:30pm, on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

A variety of food and beverage specialties will be on offer such as raclette with potatoes and pickles, the traditional “Bolo-Rei” straight from the oven, Gyosas, homemade sausages from Biergarten Metzgerei and waffles with different toppings, among others, and a wide range of drinks, such as Pilsner, a Special Bock Christmas version of the Porches Craft Beer (VILA VITA's own craft beer), Herdade dos Grous and Quinta de Valbom wines, hot chocolate, spiced teas and, of course, the traditional mulled wine (glühwein).

As a prelude to Christmas, everyone can get jolly and into the festive mood, enhanced by live music, a children’s playing area with a bouncy castle, face painting, candied cotton carts, and even a fire pit where visitors can roast marshmallows while waiting expectantly for Santa Claus’s appearance.

Three days of pure Christmas celebration between family and friends with the warm and unique atmosphere of the most authentic German beer garden in Portugal, which will culminate with the prize draw of the VILA VITA Christmas hampers. Entrance is free for all.
