Few words about the Wine Festival
The Wine Festival has been established in Limassol since 1961. The celebration emblem is a man wearing the traditional costume of Cyprus, which can be seen by entering the main entrance of the Public Garden on the south side.
At the main entrance, guests can try out unlimited quantity of all types of wine from the well-known Limassol winemakers.
The Wine Festival of Limassol, is inspired by the Greek tradition and Dionysia, which were celebrations, known as symposia, which the state offered free of charge, giving the bourgeois and farmers the opportunity to enjoy the new tastes of wine. During the Dionysia they would take part in group dances, poetry and theatrical plays. Also, during the celebrations, a number of slaves were freed.
Every year, thousands of people from all the cities of Cyprus visit the Limassol wine festival for a few moments of relaxation, fun and enjoying plenty of Cypriot wine.
