Lemesos Wine Festival 2018

The Wine Festival is an event directly related to the human factor. This is a cultural event that people organise immemorial when similar feasts with reference to wine organized.

The Wine Festival in Lemesos can be seen, somehow, as a variant, like the revival of worship celebrations in honor of Dionysus, the god of the vine and wine, like Aphrodite, goddess of beauty and love, which were held in antiquity. During these events, the people worshiped their gods, but first and foremost cared for his own amusement.

The Festival takes place in the Lemesos (Limassol) Municipal Gardens, which are situated on the east side of the town near the sea.

There is an entrance fee which is payable at the gate, of which there are three. On entry to the Festival through the main entrance, situated on the south, you will see a giant statue of a Cypriot village winegrower in his traditional local costume.

This has been the emblem of the Wine Festival since the 1961. There are pavilions on both sides of the main entrance belonging to the wineries of Lemesos (Limassol): ETKO, KEO, LOEL, SODAP, and LAONA, where the visitors can taste, free of charge, all kinds of wines. It must be emphasized that all the wines offered to all visitors in unlimited quantities is free of charge with the compliments of the Lemesos (Limassol) Municipality.

Every evening about 15,000 visitors come along to the Festival, to enjoy the happy and jolly atmosphere of people feasting with wine, delicious local dishes, at fixed low prices, local dances and songs and theatrical plays with comedy, humor and satire.

One night in the Limasol's wine festival is an opportunity for every person to live the Greek tradition of the Dionysiac celebrations, when all inhabitants of Attica, citizens or farmers, sat at common banquets, offered free by the state, tasted the new wines and participate in the mass dances,songs, poetry and drama. During these celebrations a number of slaves were set free, whilst those still in slavery were allowed a spell of independence and entertainment. As then, here are the free banquets, the free wine, but there are no slaves to free, you can get free from every care of life from social conventions and formalities, from daily needs and worries of life.
