Singing of the Kings

Another initiative of the Amarante Municipality, this meeting aims to preserve one of the emblematic local traditions, the singing of the kings; or using the portuguese term, the singing of the Janeiras.

The event gathers folklore groups from all the county to a night of communal interaction and cultural sharing amongst themselves and with the audience. In January 2017, 22 folklore groups, with around 700 members, and up to 1300 people participated in this gathering.
