Get Back into Nature and Adventure at the Vamvakou Experience Festival

SPARTA — From September 3 to 5, a three-day festival hosted by Vamvakou Revival will welcome people to take in the mountain scenery and soak up traditional Greek village life—with a twist. The theme of this year’s Vamvakou Experience Festival, held on the idyllic slopes of Mount Parnon, is “Return to Nature, Return to Yourself, Return to Life!”

Sample from a smorgasbord of mountain experiences, from hiking, to cycling, to picnicking, to walks around town, to food and wine tastings. Take in music events featuring the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata, the Quitar Duo, and the Oros Ensemble—the group created through a Vamvakou Revival residency with the artistic guidance of the Greek National Opera and the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). Enjoy outdoor cinema and silent films with the luscious landscape of Mount Parnon as a backdrop. Rediscover your sense of awe while stargazing, enjoying environmental programs for children, and taking part in a robotics and science marathon at V.Lab (Vamvakou Technology Lab fully powered by SNF). Let yourself be transported by stories from the past and present—and a vision for the future of the village.

The Vamvakou Experience Festival is organized as part of the Vamvakou Revival Initiative with exclusive support from SNF.

September 3-5, 2021 | Free Admission
