This is one of the great events that resulted from the European Youth Capital (CEJ) Braga 2012, which was repeated in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, and took more than 350,000 people to the streets of the city in the last edition. Throughout the six editions, the event has created diverse activities from street animation to exhibitions of handicrafts, performances, theater, installations, dance, offering concerts of artists with national recognition.
