The Heraklion Summer Festival is a long-standing cultural institution of unfailing impact. Once again, the programme for 2019 features major events in various forms of the arts (theatre, the spoken word, music, dance and cinema).
In aiming to showcase local artistic potential, creativity and the capabilities of people keen to express themselves and share facets of their talent, this year an effort has once again been made to give local culture groups a platform for expression. Admission to fifty performances will be free of charge, with voluntary contributions of food for needy
groups in society.
Together with the theme-based festivals Art en Route and Crete: One History, Five Plus One Cultures (which have been organized ever since this administration took over, featuring activities specially prepared for presentation in the city), we trust that the performances in the 2019 Heraklion Summer Arts Festival will be truly entertaining cultural events for residents and visitors alike.
