There are Albufeira events throughout the year, with fairs and festivals, regular markets and the ultimate summer events programme from June to September when Albufeira organises lots of entertainment throughout the town with pop groups, bands, dance and theatre groups. Albufeira has a Jazz Festival in September and food festivals like the Chicken Festival in Guia and the Sardine Festival in Olhos d'Água which are both in August. Oh - and lets not forget about the massive celebrations at New Year, Albufeira organises the biggest New Year party in the Algarve!
So read on for lots of information about the great events in Albufeira! Find out what annual events take place, when the Algarve bank holidays are (so you don't miss out on something or on a practical note, get caught out by the supermarkets closing) and when and where the Albufeira markets take place.
