The Festival


Braga Guitar Festival is an artistic event which focuses on classical guitar, an instrument so strongly rooted in the contemporary collective imaginary and seeks to bring to Braga its great players in solo or chamber music performances thus constituting a relevant moment of Braga cultural offer.

The program of the festival results from the consideration of a set of aesthetic-musical options aimed at the constitution of new audiences in a process of solid and progressive construction and development, from a public service perspective.

Every year we try to diversify the concert halls of the festival in order to invite the audience to visit the spaces of the city of recognized cultural and / or patrimonial interest.

In addition to the concerts, the festival’s program also includes other activities such as two international biannual competitions (Chamber Music with Guitar and Classical Guitar (solo), Conferences, Workshops, Masterclasses, Exchange activities, etc.).
