The municipality of Nea Smyrni, a southern suburb of Athens, holds a festival of the arts every year on May 1. This year’s festival expanded on the traditional celebration with new programming. The public participates in the festival with unbridled enthusiasm.
In recent years, there has been a parade featuring well-known artists who leave their mark on the municipality’s cultural history.
This year’s programming included exhibits of books and drawings, concerts, recitals, and so on. On May 5, 2019, the program featured performances by ten different dance ensembles. Among them was the Hamazkayin “Nanor” Dance Ensemble of Greece.
