PicNic of Arts and Athletics at Aristoteleia 2013

If you plan on visiting the lovely peninsula of Halkidiki you can join in a special picnic as a modern-day ‘fellow of Aristotle’; the picnic is part of the Aristoteleia 2013 events and will take place at Stageira on August 11, 2013.

In the unique grounds of Aristotle Park, lovers of the Arts will have the opportunity to spend an afternoon in the place where Aristotle’s theories are shown through interactive instruments which operate according to the Physical laws, as described in the books of the great Ancient Greek philosopher.

During this original picnic, visitors will have the opportunity to get acquainted with some of the oldest sports in history and to exercise their mind, soul and body. The programme includes a demonstration of Pagkratio (ancient form of wrestling), magical musical moments with the Camerata of the Municipality of Aristotle, degustation and much more!
PicNic of Arts and Sports is part of the Aristoteleia events, a major cultural institution which has been organised the last two years by the Municipality of Aristotle; events take place mostly during the summer season. Aristoteleia used to be the biggest celebration in the Ancient Greek World in honour of the philosopher Aristotle.

This year’s summer programme will run until August 21, 2013, the season’s last full moon. The winter programme will be running – as usual - until June 20 of the following year.
