Full Moon Festival in Athens, August 2008

Every August, on the eve of the full moon, several archeological sites in Greece stay open late for a full moon festival.  This year, 2008, is no different, and if you are fortunate enough to be in Athens on August 16, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Acropolis and the Parthenon under the light of the moon, while being serended by various classical musicians and opera singers.  

The Acropolis will be open from 9 PM until 1 AM on August 16, 2008, and best of all, admission is free!

  1. We really enjoyed our stay in Athens, but it would have been very useful to know more in advance about what was happening ‘culturally’ in the city. If anyone wants to post info for visitors about future events, they are welcome to do so via the Comments box which follows my blog on Athens Music, as above.
    Thanks, and best!
    PS You may like the photo of the little cat on my piece about the August Moon… What’s the date of the 2009 August Moon Festival, please?
