"Stones & Marbles"
Three days dedicated to the cultural and natural heritage of Paros.
A celebration of the place and its people.
Paros Festival for the fifth consecutive year, guides us to the island by projecting its different perspectives and invites us to discover it through a series of innovative cultural activities. At the center of this year's festival is the mineral wealth of the Parian land. Starring its famous white marble, the lychnitis, Paros became known throughout the world mainly through its use in sculpture and architecture.
The aim of the festival is to extract and highlight elements of natural wealth, architecture, customs and traditions of the place by displaying Parian marble, the history of quarries, dry stones walls, traditional stone building techniques and settlements and their structural elements. Throughout the three days, there will be exhibitions of contemporary art, a series of educational programs, events for children, experiential workshops, guided tours, walks and visits to historic buildings of the traditional settlement. The program includes screenings, concerts and music events.
