    Imaginarius – International Street Theatre Festival of Santa Maria da Feira is Portugal’s largest Street Arts event and an international reference. It takes place every year, for two days, in the month of May.

    The Festival has been investing, since 2001, in major international productions and in the development of original creations to be premiered as part of its programming, thus giving way to experimentation and the imagination of local creators. The official program also includes the Mais Imaginarius section, a competition of projects by emerging artists, and Imaginarius Infantil, with workshops and innovating experiences for audiences aged between 3 and 12.

    Imaginarius is currently part of the European Street Arts circuit, through its presence within the Circostrada Network, in conjunction with a number of partnerships with other festivals and creation projects, thus contributing to Santa Maria da Feira’s assertion as the Portuguese capital of Street Arts.

    Through the dynamics of Imaginarius 365, Santa Maria da Feira breathes Street Arts all year round.

    Mais Imaginarius is a section of the Imaginarius Festival which aims to give way to emerging artists willing to show their work, through a competition of artistic creations.

    This section challenges artists to present proposals that approach public space in all its various perceptions, by testing formats and models, towards building new artistic identities.

    The diversity, quantity and quality of the projects that have applied to Mais Imaginarius over the past years show how willing the artists are to occupy Santa Maria da Feira’s public space and express themselves through multiple languages.
