« Ifestia » Volcano Fireworks Festival

Ifesteia Festival is a representation of the Minoan Eruption (or the Thera Eruption) that took place in 1,613 BC. Every year around mid-August the municipality of Santorini organises a dramatically realistic representation event of volcanic explosion with fireworks and sounds, traditional dancing, costumes, music concerts, local food and more. It is a unique phantasmagorical night, offered exclusively by the hospitable people of Santorini celebrating those at first unpleasant events of volcanic explosions that resulted eventually at the formation of one of the most unique places on earth!
