Renaissance Festival

The Renaissance Festival counts a long time of presence and continues to blend integrity and durability as well as the zeal of its founders and contributors. It celebrates the period of Cretan Renaissance and attempts to revive it by a series of cultural activities.

The Renaissance era is a source of inspiration for the collective conscience, that acknowledges the establishment of this heritage and contributes to its revitalization and enhancement, thus bringing to light the local cultural identity and the historical and cultural exchanges, which created new paths leading the Cretan literature and poetry to their flourishing. The Renaissance Festival considered to be one of a kind in the Mediterranean region. Its a meeting point of local and international artists.
