Aeschylia Festival in Elefsina

Aeschylia, Festival, Institution

An indisputable institution in the cultural scene not only of Attica but of the entire country, Aeschylia Festival is organised every year in the town of Elefsina, consistently offering a comprehensive programme that features cultural events of high quality and aesthetic value.

Every August, towards the end of the month, Elefsina transforms into a cultural role model town and welcomes the audience – residents and foreign visitors of Attica – at the wonderful Old Oil Mill venue, with the coast of Elefsina in the background. Enjoy extraordinary nights full of theatre, music, visual arts and cinema under the stars, at the birthplace of Aeschylus and site of the famous Eleusinian Mysteries!

One of the longest-living festivals not only of Attica but of the whole country, Aeschylia has been awarded as one of the best Festivals in Europe, winning the EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) Label, initiated by the European Festival Association.

During your stay in Attica, schedule a visit to Elefsina, European Capital of Culture 2021, a town that was and still is a cradle of culture!
