Festivals in Greece

Dionyssia- Athens Wine Festival

Oenorama was created in 1994 and over the years has adapted to changes in the wine market remaining pertinent, beneficial and accessible to both the consumer and the wine trade. The one thing that hasn’t changed at Oenorama is the show’s protagonist: Wine. Twenty-three years down the line, Oenorama has evolved from a traditional wine fair into a multi-level communication platform that caters to the needs of a diverse public, including growers, the trade (both foreign and domestic) and wine-loving consumers. It seeks to effectively promote the wines, the wineries and the people behind the wines, both inside the exhibition and online, due to its dynamic presence on social media, which will be expanded even further this year.

Athens Epidaurus Festival

What is the Athens Festival? A great celebration that has lasted 56 summers, and that has hosted some of the leading lights of theatre, music and dance. From Mitropoulos and Callas to Rostropovich, Pavarotti, Leonidas Kavakos and Dimitris Sgouros. From Theodorakis and Hadjidakis to Savvopoulos, Protopsalti, Dalaras and Marinella. From Rondiris and Koun to Streller, Peter Hall, Noh theatre, Bunraku puppet theatre, and the Peking Opera. From Balanchine to Pina Bausch, and from Nureyev and Fonteyn to Martha Graham and Alicia Alonso. Above all, however, it is a venture with an eventful past often clouded by events in Greece’s recent history. A venture that, over the last two years, has taken on a youthful vitality, and openness.
