PASSOD'ARTE – The International Busker Festival, Crato, is an event lead by a local association with the main goal of enhancing and developing Crato’s community potential in its multiple perspectives.
The festival will be presenting street performances by Portuguese and International Artists, ranging from musicians to drama acts, acrobats, jugglers, magicians, clowns and many more! You will be surprised by the outstanding talent we will have on show over ten different stages across the historical streets of Crato village. Food and drink stalls, organised by the local community, will also be available in different areas.
Our aim is not only to establish this event as a well-known and quality recognised annual festival - both at a nationally and internationally level - but to also compromise in a much wider vision. We aim to celebrate our roots, recall our sense of identity and by doing so empowering the community’s pride and sense of belonging. We celebrate life with joy, mixing older and younger generations in different activities, appreciating our own and other cultures. In the long run, our goal is to intrinsically develop our local economy, gradually but firmly, sustained by the local shops, cultural activities, arts and crafts, tourism and entrepreneur initiatives.
