Festas do Mar, Festivals of the Sea, is a summer festival held in Cascais every year. The festival includes music and concerts in Summer. It is organized by the Municipality of Cascais and Tourism of Cascais to emphasize music in Portuguese. It is free to attend this amazing festival. The Baia de Cascais where the festival is held is a stage closest to the Atlantic, which makes it more special. During the festival, there are places to eat and drink around the stage. Moreover, you can sit on the coast “Praia de Riberia” while enjoying the concert and the stunning view.
