ABOUT

The 8th edition of The Best of Portugal will take place on the 12 and 13 of September 2020 at the Cinquentenaire Park in Brussels

This two-day event not only brings the flavors, tastes and colors of Portugal to the people living in the capital of the EU, but it also helps Portuguese agri-food companies set foot in the Belgian market.

“Brussels already has a considerable Portuguese community, and it maintains a consistent and quality economic activity in the sectors of catering, services, transport, construction, tourism, design and information technologies. It is these economic agents that also intend to promote in order to give more visibility to the services of excellence provided by the Portuguese community,” explains Eduardo Oliveira e Sousa, President of Confederation of Portuguese Farmers (CAP).

In September 2020, The Best of Portugal will showcase several wines from the many wine-growing regions of Portugal, as well as cheeses, particularly those produced with sheep and goat’s milk, sausages produced with our native pigs, hams and alheiras, olive oils from the most traditional Portuguese regions, honeys, even the most typical mono-florals of Portugal, the most recognized fruits and vegetables in the country such as rock pear of the West, the apple of Alcobaça and the orange of the Algarve, among many others.

One of the many attractions of The Best of Portugal is the wide array of music on offer. With the beautiful Arch of the Cinquentenaire as the setting, attendants to The Best of Portugal enjoy outdoor performances by popular bands and singers who bring the atmosphere to another level of conviviality and joy.
