Thassos Island - Festivals

There are a number of cultural, musical and folklore festivals on Thassos each year. The Festival of Ancient Drama held in the old theatre is the most important. Musical events are held in the Stadium. Among the folk celebrations, the re-enactment of a Thassos wedding at Theologos and the events connected with the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin at Panagia on August 15 are the most interesting.
