Portugal prepares for 2012 Algarve Folklore FestivalAny trip to Portugal can provide visitors with the opportunity of discovering the rich history of this fascinating country, but the popular Algarve Folklore Festival also allows people to learn more about the cultural heritage of a wide cross-section of nations through a series of traditional activities and celebrations.

The 2012 event is due to take place throughout the month of September in and around the Algarve capital of Faro, and will feature a spectacular array of performances from local, national and international talent.

Details of this year’s programme have yet to be announced but each year includes an extraordinary range of parades, storytelling, dance workshops, theatre shows and even insightful lectures that will be suitable for the entire family.
