The Fado Museum had free fado four nights a week in streets around the Alfama - ask at the gift shop desk. We attended two nights and while the quality of the singing was not as good as at the fado restaurants we visited, it...More

The facility was clean and the displays were informative and engaging (in conjunction with the audio guide). Recommend stopping by the Fado Museum BEFORE attending a Fado performance…you...More
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.

Sorry - I just visited the place. I suggest you ask the museum itself. However, if there is a live performance it will be pretty small since there is a small cinema type theatre and a courtyard which might accommodate an intimate performance. So whatever is being planned is no festival a grand scale!
