Limassol Wine Festival; August: As its name suggests, the Limassol Wine Festival celebrates Cypriot wine, with local wineries offering free samples and demonstrations of traditional grape-pressing methods. It’s one of the most popular annual tourist attractions in Cyprus.
Paphos Aphrodite Festival; September: Paphos’ striking medieval castle provides the backdrop for the three-day Paphos Aphrodite Festival, which features performances from internationally acclaimed opera singers.
Limassol Carnival; February/March: Like Venice’s Carnival, the Limassol Carnival in Cyprus is part of the Christian tradition of indulging before the austere Lent period begins. This lively, 11-day event opens with a Carnival King leading a colourful parade into town.
