Os Quatro e Meia, Taxi, Slow J and Gisela João are the names confirmed for the Maranho Gastronomy Festival, which will take place in Sertã from July 18 to 21.

“This year’s Maranho Festival is on a par with the big music festivals, which is an excellent opportunity to promote the area,” said the mayor of Sertã, Carlos Miranda, in a statement sent to the Lusa news agency today.

This festival, according to the mayor, is a showcase of the best that the municipality has to offer in terms of culture, tourism and the economy.

The event’s headliners are Os Quatro e Meia, Taxi, Slow J and Gisela João, in a varied program aimed at all age groups.

Sertã maranho, the flagship of local gastronomy, is the centerpiece of the festival, which aims to promote this product with a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).

As in previous editions, the Maranho Gastronomy Festival has a series of different spaces and activities.

The event kicks off on July 18 with the shows “Canta-me como Foi” (with the sertaginenses Paloma Del Pillar and Soraia Farinha), We are the 90’kids and Os Quatro e Meia.

The following day, the Marauders, Wakadelics, Let’s Control the 80s and Táxi will perform.

On July 20, Lika, Super Mars (Tribute to Bruno Mars), DJ Funkelada and Slow J take to the main stage.

Fado singer Gisela João closes the festival on July 21.

Regarding the investment made by the municipality, Carlos Miranda stressed that “the return that the festival gives to the county far outweighs the investment made, as it has a direct impact on the local economy”.

Maranho da Sertã is a bagged meat made from the stomachs of sheep and goats, with meat from both species, as well as arroz carolino and mint.

Also included as compulsory ingredients are bandouga, streaky bacon, ham, virgin or extra olive oil, white wine, salt and water.
