Porto Santo hosts another edition of the Colombo Festival, which will take place from September 12 to 14 in Vila Baleira, and promises a lot of excitement for the whole family.

One of the island's most iconic events returns to recreate the time when the merchant lived in Porto Santo. For three days you will be able to travel through history, celebrate the Portuguese Discoveries and dive into the experiences of the time.

The programme consists of various shows and performances that give life to that time. The historic procession of reception to Christopher Columbus, the fire and percussion theatres, horse gun tournaments or concerts with 16th century music are some of the highlights of the programme, which will win over both kids and adults.

The event also has a true 16th Century Market, where you can feel the rhythm of the markets in the light of the time, central to the social interactions of the time. A complete experience in gastronomy, fighting between merchants, military garrison, judgment of heretics and violators and circus arts, among other surprises, that transport visitors to another time in history.

The party atmosphere, the recreation of the costumes of the time, the staging, songs and dances make the Colombo Festival one of the highlights of the calendar of events and a moment not to be missed for those visiting the island.
