Faro seems to have a major local event every week, which means that there will always be something happening whenever you visit. Follow the Portuguese tradition of eating grapes at midnight during the notorious New Year's Eve parties in December, check out classical music performances from leading Portuguese orchestras during the International Music Festival in April, or watch the decorated floats and processions throughout the city during Carnaval in February.
