Central list of festivals?

Hello expats Portugal community!

My wife and I are starting a two month grand adventure in September to immerse ourselves in 8 different towns for a week each. Pre-retirement? Escapism? Just love traveling? All of the above!

We are (also) from California and love food and wine. Is there a central list of food/ other festivals in different towns or would I look up each town council separately?

 

mid sept silver coast

late sept early oct Algarve

mid/late oct setubal/ cascais 

 

thanks in advance,

It would be a great thing to have! I do know of a facebook group in Central Portugal that is meant to be for this, but not sure everything is posted there:

 

Other than that, local Facebook groups for the places you are visiting, and municipio websites (some are really good, others not so good though).

I'm on the Silver coast, but mid-September doesn't tend to be the most active time - if I come across anything, I'll post it here...

@pamalcobaca    You mentioned a type of almanac publication a while back (forgot the name, sorry). Does that perhaps include this type of information?

Thanks for the info. I was hoping there might be something centralized but yes it does seem much more like a regional/local event. 

really appreciate your time.

I'm starting my 1-month grand adventure in Portugal in October.

Cheers!
