Unifant is a small, non-profit festival started in 2016 as a celebration of community, creativity and play in Central Portugal.

On 21-23 July 2023 we'll gather over 3 days and 2 nights to laugh, dance, play, make, swim, eat, and connect. If you would like to find out what makes this community so special - come and find out! We would love to welcome you!

Our Story


Unifant is a tiny organisation with an enormous heart - and a vision to connect people through festivals and events that feel like one big family coming together.

We're a 100% volunteer run, non-profit association based in Travancinha, near Seia. It all started when a group of friends threw a party for the valley community in 2016. Fast forward a few years, and our movement was beginning to grow. In 2019 we made it official and founded our Association, with a mission to build connection - between old and young, between immigrants and locals, past and present.

At our joyful, inclusive events we remember what connects us as human beings, through music, play and creativity. We like to dress up, eat good food, dance until dawn, and enjoy the chaos that emerges.


Relax, explore, share, meet new friends and enjoy our magical festival land.

Our Location

Unifant Festival is hosted in the beautiful surroundings of Quinta Companhia in Travancinha, Seia,

Central Portugal.

 

Over the past decade, this space has inspired hundreds of people from all around the world, bringing out their creative impulses and sparking art, music, and projects like the Unifant Festival.

 

With the help of volunteers, camping guests and building enthusiasts the overgrown landscape has been transformed into a little paradise where basic needs can be provided and the joy of nature can be fully experienced.

 

Companhia is a place where creativity can flourish, where dreams can come true, where the impossible becomes reality.It's been described as "a project that wants to evolve through the past. Moving back to a natural way of living that also fits into the present. Our goal is to search for the ideal combination of traditional knowledge and new technologies, to find a balance between past, present and future."

Camping

Camping is included in your weekend ticket cost.

 

We offer showers, drinking water, compost toilets and plenty of space in our natural campground. We ask that guests please use our limited water supply mindfully.

Fires and camping stoves are strictly prohibited. We take our responsibility to protect the land from fire very seriously, and welcome your help in stewarding this beautiful place.

 

There is very limited shade in the camping, so plan to enjoy your days on the festival site where we have plenty of shady spots to rest, dance and play!
