Oinoxeneia 2022

Aug 17, 2022 - Aug 31, 2022

Oinoxeneia 2022 – “FLAVORS AND MEMORIES” in Aegialeia.

After the difficult period due to the pandemic, the Oinoxenia festival returns dynamically in its full form, in the second half of August!

From Thursday, August 18 to Wednesday, August 31, a number of events will be filled in the last days of summer, highlighting as every year the Landscapes and Flavors of Aegialia.

Concerts, cinema, children’s workshops and many other activities will take place throughout the territory of the municipality of Aegialia, from the Open-Air Theater “George Pappas” and the garden of Polykentro in Myrtia to the squares of semi-mountainous settlements and from the wineries and restaurants to the neighborhoods of the Settlement!

This year’s theme of the festival could not be other than the 100th anniversary of the Destruction of Smyrna. Aegialia pioneered the settlement of the refugees of 1922 (20% of its population) who carried with them a huge gastronomic and cultural heritage! This is the legacy that this year’s institution seeks to highlight, emphasizing on people, experiences, recipes, ingredients that until today – entangled in the modern way of life – affect the whole society.

More specifically, there will be documentary screenings and book presentations related to the Events of 1922, tributes to cooking materials and recipes of the cooks of Smyrna, musical concerts and theatrical performances inspired by the great culture and lifestyle of the refugees.

From all the above could not be missing visits and events to wineries, walks, sound sounds and activities in the vineyards as well as gastronomic searches in the restaurants of the area! Soon the detailed program with the events and the way to participate in them will be posted.

Following the decision of the Municipal Council no. 15/2022, the Oinoxeneia Festival acquired its own Management Body, a nine-member committee consisting of representatives of the Quality Network of Oinoxeneia, the Municipal And Regional Development Network of Aegialia and people of society with relevant interests (Mrs. Tsibri Iro – General Manager of Achaia Development S.A. Mrs. Voulgari- Kontesopoulou K.- top chef, and Mrs. Koumoutsou El. – Head of the Management Body of Helmos – Vouraikos)
