Tickets for the Official Ceremonies of EUROPEADE Viseu available from tomorrow

The “European City of Folklore” is already dressed up to welcome a new edition of the EUROPEADE Festival, which starts next Wednesday, July 25th.

There will be five days of intense programming, in which major events such as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Festival will be held on July 26th and 29th, respectively, and for which all comunity, visitors and tourists are invited to attend.

Admission to these Ceremonies are free, subject to prior check-in at the Rossio Tourism Kiosk. Starting at 10:00 am tomorrow, on the 21st, tickets for both ceremonies will be available for pick up (the Kiosk will work every weekday, weekends and holidays between 10:00 am and 6:00 p.m., closed between 12:30 p.m. and at 13H30). This pick up, for reasons of stocking, is limited until 5 tickets per person.

The Municipal Stadium of Fontelo will be the privileged stage of these achievements, in which the enrolled groups will participate, both in performances and in other moments of sharing, namely their traditions and cultural richness.

The Opening Ceremony, which will start at 9 pm, will also feature an unprecedented moment, specially prepared for this large-scale event, at the invitation of the Municipality. It will be a joint dance, by the 16 registered groups of Viseu, of the traditional Portuguese music “Encadeia”.

The “fall of the cloth” at the Closing Ceremony, starting at 5:30 p.m., will be marked by a testimony to the host city of the next edition of the EUROPEADE Festival which in 2019 will be Frankenberg in Germany.
