Tremor also gives the public the opportunity to experience the cuisine and traditions of Rabo de Peixe in a family atmosphere, with the “Na Nossa Mesa” program.

“This year there are six houses opening their doors for the festival, serving more than 200 meals. And if you can’t find a place at the table, you can always join the party during the Community Kitchen festival, which will take place on March 29 at 7:30 pm [local time, 8:30 pm in Lisbon] in the fishing port of Rabo de Peixe,” say the promoters.

The image of the 11th Tremor Festival is inspired by the art of puppetry and the traditional Lapinha nativity scenes, and a workshop was held to reinterpret this art, in collaboration with the Lagoa Puppetry Art Center.
