This year 2018 it is Licrase who will be organizing the XXVIII Monográfica do Cão da Serra da Estrela, which will be held on the 15th September 2018, judged by Mr Manuel Correia (PT). Admission of the dogs will commence at 9am. We have used this year to join the Monográfica with the Chocalhos 2018 festival, which will take place in the beautiful village of Alpedrinha county of Fundão. In addition to the Monográfica do Cão da Serra da Estrela we will also have two other Monográficas happening on the same day of two very special breeds the Cão de Castro Laboreiro and Barbado da Terceira. Without a doubt a great canine feast in an already enormous event such as the Chocalhos, where you can see several endogenous products, the different dog breeds, the shepherds, the sheep, the already known transhumance held on Sunday, September 16 in the morning in a march of 8 kms where dogs, sheep and shepherds go from Fundão to Alpedrinha. There will also be herd driving tests, local folklore, little artisan shops, local taverns where you can taste many delicious dishes and liquor, and lots of nightlife.
