Festa da Cereja (which translates into the Cherry Festival) is next on your schedule of Madeira Events this June on 14 and 15 June! The event is held in Camara de Lobos, Jardim da Serra, and the guest of honor is the irresistibly sweet flavor of cherries. Differents sorts of cherries that bloom and give fruit in June are being grown in the rich soil of Madeira. There is a parade, music and plenty of entertainment, and while you’re dancing to the happy rhythms of Madeira, don’t forget to take a sip of ginjinha, Morello cherries liqueur!
The Feast of all Saints is present in Madeira, Portugal as well, in the form of Festa dos Santos Populares, held every June in honour of the patron saints São Joao (the patron of Porto Santo, honored with candle-lit balloons) e São Pedro (protector of all fishermen) and Santo Antonio (a Portuguese homologous of Saint Valentine, protector of love and marriages). This is the opportunity for the Portuguese to show both their mystical and happy side, as religious celebrations are welcomed with a general sense of liveliness and joy. The celebration lasts for over 2 weeks, starting on June 12th.
Volta a Madeira – Classic Rally is an amazing opportunity to cultivate your passion for vintage cars. The cars are stationed along Avenida Arriaga and can be admired and photographed before the actual rally begins in Funchal to Camara de Lobos, crossing beautiful Machico and traversing Santana over 400 km of spectacular landscapes of the island, the Ocean, forest and mountains. If you are into new cars and transportation is a luxury you can’t deprive yourself of, you could look into renting a car, a very popular option for tourists who travel to Madeira.
These are only a few of the amazing Madeira Events in June. All we can encourage you to do is get a plane ticket and fly here to meet us! And if you need a transfer from the airport of Madeira, you can count on us!
