Why Umbrella Sky Project (Umbrella Festival) 2017 ?
It’s not just tourists that enjoy the excitement of the umbrella canopies. Without the umbrellas the streets are pretty but plain, and so the art festival brings a refreshing pop of diversity and color to the area.
Since the umbrellas are hung in accordance with the Ágitagueda art festival, there are other artistic sights to visit simultaneously. Concerts and art exhibits are routinely on display; you may visit them all, taking solace in the shade of the brightly colored umbrellas as your travel to and from.
Creators of the Umbrella Sky Project 2017:
Since the project began, these pop-up shade structures have become an annual summertime installation and they have developed a cult following around the world. Creators of the Umbrella Sky Project, Sextafeira, have also launched offshoots of this work in other cities such as Lisbon, where they have added to the streetscape by stringing multicolored balloons over urban alleyways.
