Routes in Marpissa festival 2019


The 10th “Routes in Marpissa” festival takes place at Marpissa village on Paros Island (23-25 August 2019.

It all started in August 2010 when a group of friends invited us to a cultural festival with thematic routes to get to know Marpissa: a traditional Cycladic settlement in Paros, which has maintained its authentic character in the passage of time. Soon this group grew up, became a large team of volunteers, and the festival evolved into an institution with international distinctions. For ten years, at the end of the summer, Marpissa is ready to open the houses and yards to the public and to host hundreds of people from all over Greece and abroad. The characteristic architecture, the rich folk culture, the unique environment, and all that constitute the special character of the village are presented through thematic routes, points of interest with experiential activities, workshops for all ages, lectures, projections, contemporary art exhibitions and concerts that lead up to a traditional Cycladic feast. 

This year, “Routes in Marpissa” complete 10 years of continuous presence and organize a three-day celebration with many surprises in the centre of the Aegean Sea. Having as a point of reference the team’s archive on the cultural heritage of Paros and being inspired by the joyful and moving moments shared with volunteers, residents, artists and visitors over the years, a long festive table will be set and we are all invited. Come, walk… and celebrate with us in Marpissa!
