The Porto Cello Festival is the first cello festival to take place in Porto and Matosinhos, from 19 to 22 May 2022, which will have not only many musical offerings from all corners of the world, but a whole cultural interaction with our country and especially with the city of Porto. This festival aims to bring to these two cities moments of culture, community dynamism and knowledge in which the cello is the main protagonist. Thinking of the city as a whole, combining music with history, dance, painting, yoga, gastronomy and tourism, creating interest for a wider public. The musical currents and the type of activities included in the festival are vast, covering a larger number of age groups and musical tastes, which makes the Porto Cello Festival a space directed towards community and inclusive living.



The Porto Cello Festival team welcomes you and wishes with all the enthusiasm and satisfaction to involve you in this community!

As cellists, the thought and creation of the festival was made around a great goal: to gather artists and public in the cities of Porto and Matosinhos during 4 days of programming, in an artistic itinerary, thought for all, with moments of conviviality and sharing, concerts, masterclasses, activities-day and many surprises!

It’s been a long journey, but here we are with the 1st edition of the Porto Cello Festival and we are very happy to have you join us on this journey through the cultural and artistic life of the world! These moments connect us, challenge us to discover different paths and make us take the journey ever further!

With esteem and a hug, 
Teresa e Tiago,
