The Event

The Prometheia festival is the top event highlighting the ancient Greek spirit. Every year it gathers together a multitude of visitors from Greece and abroad, at the fabulous natural surroundings of the Prometheus woods at the foot of Mount Olympus, the legendary home to the ancient Greek gods and goddesses and the highest mountain in Greece, located on the border between Thessaly and Macedonia, about 100 km from Thessaloniki.

The guests of the Festival have the opportunity to honour ancient philosophers and to get initiated to their ancestral spirit by watching the events of the Promethean drama and the Promethean fire that have been the cornerstone of the Greek worldview and the Greek culture. A Dionysian celebration follows the main events, representing other elements of the Greek religion and culture, like cleansing, names-giving and wedding ceremonies, performed according to the rituals of the Greek pre-Christian tradition.
