Ifestia Festival

Ifestia Festival

Each September in Santorini takes place a very particular event – Ifestia festival, the celebration of the volcano! The festival is entirely dedicated to the volcano eruption that changed the landscape of Santorini forever in the mid-second millennium BCE. The Ifestia Festival happens during one day and consists of a series of artistic events dedicated to the mighty volcano from the middle of caldera, whose major highlight is a re-enactment representation of the famous Minoan Eruption (or the Thera Eruption) that took place around 1600 BC. The spectacular show is made by fireworks flying out of the volcano, making it a stunning view, but also sound and light effects are used to reenact the lava flow and the explosions of the volcano.
