Old Town Festival

01/09/2018 - 08/09/2018

The Old Town Festival is another great cultural event of Xanthi. At the turn from summer to autumn, and for two weeks the old Xanthi becomes the center of the cultural interest. Since 1991 when the festival was introduced, the city lives for a while in the past, awaking old memories, experiences, with the rhythms of the music seeping through the narrow alleyways of the traditional village while envisioning and contemplating the future with optimism. Artistic performances, dance, music, theater and visual arts events, are part of the festival. The cultural associations play a key role here. "The haunts of the clubs" set up grills and tables. The wine flows in abundance, the snacks consumed in a fast pace and followers of Dionysus dance traditional music and rebetiko music. The Old Town Festival is organized by the Municipality of Xanthi and the Municipality Cultural Center of Xanthi.
