Cultural Events in Sitia 2009

Cultural Events at Sitia – Kornareia 2009

The program of cultural events at Sitia, Kornareia 2009, that includes musical and theatrical events, was recently published.

The main and most important event this year was the International Scientific Convention about the great poet from Sitia, Vitsentzos Kornaros, with the title “Erotokritos’ World”, with the occasion of 456 years from his birth. Unfortunately this event took place in Sitia in July, but it was announced too late, therefore we didn’t have enough time to include it in July’s issue.

Here you will find the cultural events that will take place in Sitia and the surrounding villages from August 2009 and on.
