What to do

“Mar-Marioneta” International Puppet Festival in Espinho 2015, north of Portugal

All rights reserved

Why not take advantage of your visit to Porto and the north of Portugal to take part in the International puppet festival?

Between the 1st and 29th March 2015, the City of Espinho organises once again this event, which offers many activities, from the shows most suitable for children to shows for all audiences, as well as workshops to make puppets and exhibitions.

Over the years the Mar Marionetas puppet festival has hosted shows from the most prestigious national and international companies and this year will be no exception. This festival, in addition to being an eclectic exhibition of shows that reveal the contemporary puppet world, it also organises a series of other complementary initiatives, both at the leisure and educational levels, offering an approach accessible to all audiences: workshops, exhibitions, street animations, regular activities in schools throughout the academic year within the project "Mar Marionetas – an unforgettable festival!”.

Find the programme below and contact us to fit this festival into your visit to the region! We are here to help.
