|[Carnival] [Renaissance Festival] [Cretan Diet Festival]|
Since 2008 the Renaissance Festival Rethymnon has been presented in a new format. For some time, certain people were questioning the 'Renaissance' aspect of the Summer Festival. The local council reviewed the situation and came up with a new identity for the Renaissance Festival. It is generally accepted that Rethymnon had a unique position during the Renaissance period; hence a 'rebirth' of the Renaissance Festival, one could say.
Everybody is invited to participate in a cultural dialogue between the past and the present, as well as between Northern European, Balkan and Mediterranean people - with the theme of our common historical and culture, past and present. In this dialogue nobody is just a spectator - everybody is to take part and be creative.
After a year of absence, the Renaissance Festival Rethymnon returns for 2012
