ATHENS – On December 1, the magical Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) Christmas World came alive with light, music, and activity. With support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), twinkling lights once again festoon the trees along the Canal, evergreens fill the Agora with seasonal scents, and the fountains are dancing to holiday classics! The event streamed live on the SNF website and aired on Greek national broadcaster ERT2. That same day, it was broadcast in the lobby of Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall as part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center (SNF-LC) Agora Initiative.
Lighting up the night all throughout December, this year’s festive program includes performances, concerts, readings, workshops, the beloved ice rink at the Canal, new lighting installations at Stavros Niarchos Park, and much more for visitors of all ages.
The events culminate on New Year’s Eve with a big, open party to welcome the new year, as well as the beloved SNF RUN: 2024 FIRST RUN, which is organized under the supervision of nonprofit Regeneration & Progress.
