Was it canceled? Events canceled due to coronavirus

Portugal, as many other countries around the globe lives days of uncertainty, with the numbers of people infected by the new coronavirus growing from day to day. At this moment there are colleges, schools, museums, libraries and other public spaces closed in several cities such as Lisbon, Porto, Braga, etc.

There are also many canceled or postponed events, as a preventive measure to try to avoid contagion as much as possible and contain the outbreak while there is time. Given the circumstances, there are concerts, fairs, congresses, sporting or technological events to be canceled and they are more every day.

This follows, in fact, the recommendations of the Portuguese Ministry of Health, which advised last month the cancellation or postponement of outdoor events with more than 5,000 people and indoor with more than 1,000.

To help travelers to be aware of these important information and changes, we at traveltolisbon.app created a list of some of the must important events that that will no longer happen, or in some cases just behind closed doors, such as BTL, Feira da Foda, Revenge parties, Expo Mecânica, Talkfest, several marathons, among dozens of other developments.

Following Government orders, all museums and theaters are closed until further notice.
