Marcha da Madragoa is the winner of the Marchas Populares de Lisboa 2022 contest

In second place was Marcha de Alcântara and in third was Marcha do Alto do Pina.

Avenida da Liberdade was filled with music, color and brightness during the 88th edition of the Marchas Populares of Lisbon. Two years after a forced stop, due to the pandemic, the Marchas parade return into the street, on the Saint Anthony's night, singing "Amália é Lisboa" - the winner of the Grande Marcha de Lisboa 2020 contest, year of the centenary of the birth of the diva do Fado.

The Marcha Popular Vale do Açor, this year's guest, opened the parade. This was followed by the Marcha Infantil das Escolas de Lisboa, premiering on Avenida da Liberdade and the three extra-competition marchas: "A Voz do Operário", Mercados and Santa Casa.

The 20 marchas in competition were evaluated in two moments  - in Altice Arena and Avenida da Liberdade - by a jury composed by Pedro Santos Franco (Jury President), Henrique Feist (Choreography Appreciation), José Costa Reis (Scenography Appreciation), Maria Luiz (Costume Appreciation), Mário Rainho (Lyrics Appreciation), Jorge Fernando (Music Appreciation), Filipa Pais (Global Appreciation) and Sofia Bicho (EGEAC Representative).
