Greek summer festivals

Dear Traveler,

August is officially the month of vacations and island travel. While family trips are on the agenda for some, others are looking to combine beach holidays with cultural activities.

Every summer Greece is bursting with cultural events and festivals which take place in all corners of the country. The Greek Summer Festivalspromise unique and refined experiences that will evoke profound emotions, taking visitors on a journey through a centuries-old culture.

In our Chasing the Festivals issue we explore some of Greece’s best and most popular cultural events. From the internationally renowned gastronomic Sani Gourmet Festival which celebrated its 14th year, to the largest animation festival in Greece — Anima Syros taking place towards the end of September.

Festivals are a wonderful way to experience a destination. These unique cultural events run every year, thus if you missed your chance to attend this summer — there is always a reason to come back in 2019!

Wishing you all a peaceful and relaxed August.
