31 March 2015 Festivals
Last chance to participate in International Folk Festival "Perea - Thessaloniki" - 31 July - 4 August 2015. You can fill an application for participation at: http://eaff.eu/en/festivals/
The festival will be held in Perea. The region of the municipality is coastal and it is located at the east of the prefecture of Thessaloniki, in the central part of Thermaikos bay to the exquisite coasts of the blue Aegean Sea. It is 20 km far from the city of Thessaloniki and it covers an area of 21.000 sq. meters, out of which 5.000 sq. meters belong to the town planning.
Our previous Festivals in North and South Pieria had a great success as we welcomed groups and representatives of more than ten countries. We expect that our 1st International festival in Perea will have a larger impact and will provide to the participants opportunities to learn about different cultures and people, create new friendships, exchange experiences and contacts with other folk groups. Furthermore, during their stay the participants will have the pleasure to enjoy the Greek hospitality, the crystal blue sea and a bright Greek sun.
Tourism, amusement and relaxation are the basic economic activities of our municipality. The region of Thermaikos attracts always a significant number of visitors during the summer.
In the coastal area of the municipality, there are a lot of taverns, bars and cafeterias, and walking in the evening on the beach of Thermaikos is a particular pleasure for the thousands of visitors who enjoy the view of the enlightened Thessaloniki.
