The winners of the big night of Santos Populares in Lisbon were the marchers from Alcântara. They were followed on the podium by Marvila and Alfama.

The Marcha de Alcântara – whose motto was ‘No matter how much paint runs, Alcântara is the neighborhood with the most paint’ – was the big winner of the 2024 Lisbon Marches Competition, which saw representatives from 20 Lisbon neighborhoods parade down Avenida da Liberdade on Wednesday night.

“Your determination, energy and originality did not go unnoticed, long live Alcântara,” wrote the Alcântara Parish Council on Facebook, congratulating the organization, “marchers, musicians and everyone involved”.

In second place were the Marcha de Marvila and the Marcha de Alfama.

The 20 marches in competition were assessed by a jury chaired, in this edition, by Albano Ginja and made up of Rita Spider (Choreography Assessment), Fernando Alvarez (Set Design Assessment), Ana Paula Rocha (Costume Design Assessment), Carlos Leitão (Lyrics Assessment), Rui Massena (Music Assessment) and Leonor Padinha (EGEAC representative). The central theme of the Great Lisbon March was ‘O Tejo Afinal’, with lyrics by Flávio Gil and music by João Paulo Soares.
