Argolida Nightlife & Events

The Argolida Prefecture has a wide selection of nightlife and dining venues. Nightlife in Nafplion, the capital of Argolida, is very exciting, with entertainment venues for all styles and tastes. Bars and clubs can also be found in popular holiday resorts, such as Tolo, Argos, Ermioni, Ancient Epidaurus (Epidauros), Kosta and Porto Heli. Tavernas and restaurants abound in Argolida Greece; there are several even in the most remote mountain village. Scrumptious Argolian dishes, such as cock with chilopittes (a kind of pasta), goat meat soup, fresh seafood dishes, seafood linguini will satisfy your appetite.

‘Sample’ the traditional side of Argolida Greece by participating in some of the festivals and events. Ermioni hosts the Fishermens’ Festival, while Nea Kios is the location of the “Koulouma”, both of which take place on Ash Monday. The cultural festival in Thermissia on March 25 is excellent. The “Burning of Judas” on Easter Sunday is a practise in Ermioni and Porto Heli, while in Nea Kios, people burn a replica of Barabbas on Good Friday.

In Nafplion, you can attend the Music Festival, which takes place in the summer and hosts artists from all over the world. A number of cultural events are held in the summer in Argos. In Epidaurus (Epidauros), you can attend the Epidaurus Ancient Drama Festival during the summer months. The Festival of Sotiros takes place on August 6, on the beach in Nea Epidaurus. In Nea Kios, the “Mikrasiatika” and “Kiana” festivals are held in July and August, respectively. In September, we suggest attending the “Trata” Festival, another event linked to fishing, in Tolo and the Wine Festival of Karakasi, a village famous for its wines.
