About Golegã Horse Fair

Golegã - home of the Lusitano horse. Every year the sleepy town comes alive, undergoing an unique transformation for the 'Feira Nacional do Cavalo'. Starting in the 18th century, the fair has celebrated Portuguese agriculture, culminating on St Martin’s day with bonfires and roasted chestnuts to toast the new year’s wine.

Today the fair showcases the best of everything: Lusitano breeding, horse sport, Portuguese food and culture. From 3-12 November, thousands of horses and people gather to have party together, in what is considered one of the ultimate equine showcase experiences. Enjoy Abafadinho and roasted chestnuts while watching exceptional horsemanship in both competitions and displays. 

The Fair provides the perfect snapshot of everything uniquely Portuguese: great people, food, culture, history and a zest for life. But above all, it celebrates the one and only, magnificent Lusitano horse. The Horse of Kings. Join Lusitano World at the Feira National do Cavalo 2017 for a simply unique experience!
