Portugal’s 16th ‘Serralves em Festa’, which took place last weekend in Porto, saw a total of 264,750 visitors to the event.

According to the Serralves Foundation the event saw “the largest turnout ever,” 5.9 percent more compared to visitor numbers in 2018.

This initiative lasted 50 hours and is considered “the biggest event of contemporary culture in Portugal and one of the largest in the world,” and took place under the theme “Celebrate Serralves”.

The programme included various disciplinary areas of music, dance, performance, theatre, contemporary circus and photography.

This year, Serralves in Festa “was also marked by the very significant presence of foreign visitors,” organisers said. “Spain, Brazil, France and the United Kingdom were the most represented at the event.”
