Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem Festival

Every year, during Easter, Constância is the stage of a great religious and cultural demonstration: the Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem Festival/ Municipality Festival. 

Keeping the secular traditions related with the rivers and the maritime work, the Festival of the Municipality of Constância is the main promotional poster of both the municipality and the dissemination of its main economic, touristic and cultural potentials. 

Dozens of boats, colourfully festooned, sail to the point where the rivers Zêzere and Tagus meet in devotion to Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem (Our Lady of the Safe Journey), for the traditional blessing. The streets of the village are filled with flower arrangements and thousands of people enjoy the stands of traditional food. Constância becomes full of life. 

The festival includes a National Exhibition of Handicraft, the Exhibition “Sweet Flavours”, the Exhibition “Wisdom and Flavours of the Municipality”, the Great Easter Prize of Athletics, various sports competitions, other exhibitions and performances by national and international renowned artists.
