In the second half of February it's time for the colourful carnival which takes place in several major cities all over Portugal. It is believed that the most beautiful celebrations are held in Loule (central Algarve) where a grand costume parade is organized. During the Loule Carnival special children processions are held and they make those days even more soulful. Huge puppets and caroches painted in all colours of the rainbow, graceful dancers in festive attire and clowns make the carnival entertainment in Loule one of the best in Portugal.

Motorsport fans would be interested in visiting the Algarve, as throughout the year several major sporting events are held here. And in mid-summer the Europe's largest gathering of bikers takes place there in a very beautiful forested area close to Faro airport.

One of the largest events in the region is FATACIL Fair where both large industrial enterprises and local artisans take part. The Fair is held in the second half of August, and it usually lasts for 10 days; the permanent venue for the exhibition is Lagoa in western Algarve. FATACIL appeals not only to people who love shopping but also to those who enjoy exciting recreational activities. After appreciating the diversity of the  products in exhibition, visitors can go to music concerts, participate in interesting workshops or listen to informative lectures by leading specialists in various industries.

Medieval Days are rather new festivals and throughout the year they are held in many towns all over Portugal. One of these historical events takes place yearly in an ancient castle close to Castro Marim (close to the Spanish border). There you can see a lot of people in amazing historic attire and get acquainted with the unique culture of yesteryear.
