Xanthi’s Old Town Festival

Since 1991, Xanthi’s Old Town Festival takes place at the beginning of autumn. Each year, it offers us unforgettable moments of recreation and fun! Concerts of famous and local artists, theatrical plays, art and photography exhibitions, book fairs as well as parallel events excite different kind of interests!

It’s quite appealing that all events mentioned above take place in the enchanting setting of Xanthi’s Old Town. We could describe it as an “outdoor museum” with traditional, colourful mansions, the glory of which remains untouched through the years, and beautiful paved streets that travel us back in time…

The visitor is invited to discover the town’s beautiful traditional settlement, to go back in time and -last but not least- to have endless fun in one of the stands set by the various associations of Xanthi in the narrow, paved streets of Old Town, offering plenty of food and drinks. All those who wander around town merge into one single company dancing and celebrating together! These celebrations bring to mind the Carnival festivities of Xanthi!

If you are planning on visiting Thrace this period of time, don’t miss this incredible event that appeals to every single age group! Apparently, the variety of the events scheduled indulges all tastes and satisfies the most demanding spectator! Here, you will also have the chance to discover a unique destination of endless possibilities that will certainly impress you!

Official organiser of the Festival is the Municipal Utility Service of Xanthi.

Have fun!
