Every year the celebration of cultures is organized in parts of the old city of Kavala-Greece. The narrow alleys with traditional houses and stores fill with dance, music and children’s voices.
On the days the festival takes place, the visitor can attend a series of events – ranging from big international artists’ concerts at the city’s Fortress, folklore dances from the participating countries at Mohammed Ali’s open air theatre, ethnic cuisine at the old town’s main road, to kid’s games and workshops at the city’s lighthouse and much more at various beautiful spots of the old town.
The world’s different types of music, echo in the old city, the castle and the old customhouse, providing a universal rhythm to the thousands of visitors.
Food culture is a major part of every civilization. It reveals its origins. The ingredients, the flavors and the techniques are all connected to the climate, the morphology and the essence of every area.
Dance is an ancient and primordial way for humans to express themselves.
All the colors spread in Theodore Poulidou Street. Smells overwhelm, voices and smiles accompany your journey to the world.
The mesmerizing flair of cinema fascinates adults and children alike every night in the small theater of Panagia.
Cosmopolis Kids is a major and important part of this event. It’s the yeast that will nourish the next generations.
Cosmopolis International Festival was first held in 2000 and from 2002 to 2009 it is an annual reference point in the cultural life of the city of Kavala and the wider region.
Due to the fact that each Cosmopolis Festival should not be a reproduction of the previous one, an attempt was made to avoid either forming a certain pattern or any kind of limitations regarding artistic campaigns. So, Cosmopolis, instead of a mere selection of events, decided to emphasize on a thorough presentation of cultures.
