From early May to late October, Ermoupoleia, probably the most well-known festival on Syros island, offers a variety of events that suit almost any taste. Music and theatrical performances as well as art exhibitions take place during this unique festival that every year attracts many tourists from all over the world. It was in 1994 that Ermoupoleia started and ever since its popularity has been steadily increasing, mainly due to the fact that many highly respected Greek and international artists participate in it.
It is worth-mentioning that the events held during Ermoupoleia usually take place in various places across Syros, such as in Apollon theatre, Platia Miaouli (Miaouli Square), Pinakothiki (Gallery), and Pnevmatiko Kentro (Community Center). Ermopoleia took its name after Ermoupoli, Syros’ beautiful capital, which is very easily accessible by ferry from Piraeus and other adjacent islands all year round. Apart from the interesting cultural events, enjoy Syros’ incomparable beauty along with its lovely Cycladic architecture!
