CORINTHIA EVENTS

There are several interesting events organized in different places of the prefecture all year long.

In the beginning of autumn, the Winemakers Association of Nemea and the Municipality of Nemea organize the “Big Days of Nemea”, where visitors may taste wine and participate in its production.

Summer visitors of Sikiona may enjoy a whole series of events under the name “Sikionia”, which include concerts, theatre plays, athletic games, dancing festivals, exhibitions and festivals.

Similar events are organized in Corinth during July and August and they are called “Cultural Routes”, whereas in Ksilokastro such events are held in the framework of the “Ksilokastro-Evrostini Cultural summer” happenings.

However, the most special of all events in areas within the prefecture of Corinth is the one organized every four years in Nemea and attracts people of all ages from all over the world in order to attend the “Nemean Games”. These games are similar to the Olympic Games, but they are open to people over 6 years old, there are no winners and losers, there are no records and no medals; the “Nemean Games” are a universal celebration that imitates the Ancient Games. The next “Nemean Games” will be held in 2016.

Last but not least, there are several religious feasts which have a traditional folklore and a religious character and are usually accompanied with food, wine, traditional music and dancing. Among them, the most important are the feasts of: Saint Parskevis on July 26 in Vrachati, Saint John in Isthmia on August 29, Saint Phoebe on September 3 in Almiri, the Transfigurarion on August 6 in Kiato, and the feast of Saint Vlasios in Ksilokastro on February 11.
