Here's a link for a general overview:

algarveuncovered.com/algarve-info/…annual

It's a bit early to have exact info. on the several events, but here's one which is scheduled but not yet confirmed for these dates:

Festival Med. in Loule, June 26 - 29: For several days, the Med Festival will be bringing life and excitement to the streets of Loulé’s historic centre, benefiting from the presence in the city of many wellknown names from the universe of “world music”. Advertising itself under the slogan of “music and much more”, the festival also presents other forms of art, including handicraft exhibitions, dance performances and street theatre. To complete this display of the typical culture of various countries, the festival ground will be filled with a number of different restaurants where you can sample some of the tastes of the traditional cuisine of each of the countries taking part. Throughout this festival, Loulé, with its narrow winding streets, where it is still possible to sense the atmosphere of Moorish times, will be a real mixture of cultures that nonetheless have many features in common.
