With All Saints Day (November 1) being a public holiday, there is much to do this long weekend.
Although a short drive away, São Marcos de Serra is holding a three day festival beginning on Friday, November 1, at 2pm with street music – in particular traditional drums. With workshops from learning to play the drums to astronomy, theatre, guided tours of local distilleries and the town itself and much more, a visitor will be hard-pushed to not find something of interest to do.

The Algarve Classic Festival takes place at the Algarve’s race track, Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, over weekend. With over 300 teams and 500 drivers from around the world, the Algarve Classic Festival includes many competitions and encourages spectators to take their own classic car and also to visit the pits.
