The 2018 Querença Chorizo Festival will take place on Sunday, 21st January.
It is a festival in honour of St. Luis (the protector of animals).
Traditionally the families in inland Algarve raised a pig to sustain themselves through the year and asked St. Luis to keep it in good health. To thank the saint they offer their best homemade chorizo.
The festival includes a procession, musical entertainment and, of course, lots of homemade chorizo!
This event will include a procession, tastings of grilled sausages and lots of music.
