The greatest Madeira events in June 2015
In the Island of the Eternal Spring, summer is neither burning hot, nor tiresome – it’s another string of blissful springy days filled with entertainment. If you are planning an island trip for this summer, you’ll find interesting insight in today’s overview of the greatest Madeira events in June 2015.
What is summer without an awesome outdoor medieval market? The Machico Medieval Market starts June with a merry festival celebrating the dawns of settlement in the Madeira archipelago. Knights and damsels will be likely to be found roaming the streets of the town, re-enacting historical scenes and dancing to the music of the minstrels.
On 6, 13, 20 and 27 June 2015, the Atlantic Festival will be the scene for the greatest fireworks competition, an exciting yearly event that combines music, fireworks and fun in an international context.
The Festival of the Popular Saints held between the 12th and the 29th of June is one of the most celebrated events on the island. It honors the name of the three patron saints: Santo Antonio, protector of love and marriage, Sao Joao, patron saint of Porto Santo, and Sao Pedro, the saint of fishermen.
Finally, the Cherry Festival or Festa da Cereja is celebrated in Camara de Lobos every June (or May) since the year 1954. This is an opportunity for local producers to promote their fruit, but also a reason for people to celebrate with music, food and drink.
The Volta a Madeira classical rally is also scheduled this June, for those who love vintage cars and spectacular racing landscapes. As you can see, the calendar for Madeira June 2015 events is quite busy, so you have plenty of alternatives to choose from.
