A Fogo Island Shed Party

A Fogo Island Shed Party

Fogo’s community of Tilting, with its leaning picket fences and quaint white cottages, could be in Ireland except for the lack of pubs. No fear. Industrious Fogo Islanders create their own pop up pubs, what’s commonly referred to a shed party. Casual gatherings after a day of adventure, this is where island hosts mingle with those from away, hoisting pints, strumming guitars, having a scuff and swally.
