History

The year 2017 defines in a different way, from now on, space and time for Elefsina. We competed dynamically for and we won the title of the European Capital of Culture 2021.
Our city travelled all the way across Europe, and not only there; time became dense; we were now able to achieve in the following five years anything we have not managed to achieve in the previous ones.
The stereotype of the degraded urban area is being cast aside by the dynamic presence of Elefsina, a city which knows how to, wants to and can turn itself into a sustainable and creative entity; a model to be imitated. Culture has become a way of life in the city of Elefsina, and it lies at the heart of any effort for social, environmental and economic upgrading.

In accordance with this vision, in the framework of the Aeschylia Festival 2017, righteous and quality events take place, from the end of June until mid-October.
A total of more than 75 events are accommodated:

23 theatrical, dance and dance theatre performances, 15 music performances, 14 film screenings, 3 visual art exhibitions, 2 performance art events, a half marathon race, an international congress, and two lectures.

The large framework of this effort is the Aeschylia Festival. We all have to protect, in this new period, the values it has taught us. Then, we can be sure that Elefsina will be the example of a successful city and that, in this way, it will cleanse the previous Greek Capitals of Culture of any fault.
