Events and Festivals in Pelion

The region of Magnesia is one of the most beautiful in Greece, with impressive sites, picturesque villages and beautiful cities that are offering all the modern comforts.

From a place like Magnesia that has so great historical past and culture, that has preserved through the centuries the morals and the traditions, it wouldn’t miss the cultural events and activities.

In every village and city of Magnesia are taking place every year various cultural events, religious festivals and also theater, music and dance festivals.

At this point we should mention the reconstruction of the mythical trireme Argo, which it will revise the mythical journey to the ancient city Kolhis today’s Georgia. Below we mention some of the festivals that are taking place in the region of Magnesia during the whole year in various villages of Pelion.

Besides the yearly festivals and cultural events, had have taken place many events that brighten and fulfill our evenings.

Thus on Sunday 7th of August we enjoyed the dance group Gencsapati Traditional Folk Dance Ensemble from Hungary, on the 1st of August the folk dance group Muzsla Folkdance Group again from Hungary, but we had also Greek nights such as the one on the 29th of Luly where on the village square of Argalasti the Rempetiko Laiko Palko ( Greek Music Group) played songs and melodies we love.
