As a complement to artistic creation, Mundo Imaginarius is back in full swing, investing in the professionalization of the sector and in the promotion of accessibility and volunteering as values and practices that are increasingly relevant to regions and communities. The link between creativity and other dimensions of culture, such as gastronomy and well-being, takes on greater relevance in this edition, the first in the context of the UNESCO seal “Santa Maria da Feira – Creative City of Gastronomy”.
Imaginarius is a stage for experiences also at the table, extoling gastronomy as a unique form of art and creativity, particularly in this edition of the festival, the first following Santa Maria da Feira’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.
Challenged for a genuine crossroads of flavours, the official Sabores Imaginarius restaurants present gastronomic creations based on endogenous and seasonal products, and display their creativity in cooking and plating.
The Imaginarius Menus will be available in selected restaurants during the four days of the festival.

They are the first faces to come into contact with the Imaginarius audience. Proactive, available and motivated for an enriching experience in a benchmark project of international dimension, more than a hundred volunteers are ready to welcome, direct, inform and clarify the public about the programme, identification and mobility within the venue.
Their experience of proximity to the performers and the public makes some of the volunteers become assiduous faces.
Plural, open and universal, the Imaginarius festival continues its commitment to providing accessibility support tools, guaranteeing conditions for the full enjoyment of the programme.
