Its name back then was New Festival. Along with it, the city got to live a period full of exciting art moments. Top personalities of the arts made their appearence though all these years and placed Dimitria Festival to the level it belongs.

    Besides, starting from 1995 the Festival is listed among all the important European art events, by entering the European Festivals Association. This way it got the glamour and respect it deserved throughout Europe.

    Year after year, Dimitria Festival becomes richer, as far as its programme is concerned. This year, while it runs through its 38th year, awaits for you all, in order to take you to diverse art routes. Won't you follow?
