It will take place in Technopolis, Gazi, between the 8th and the 10th of May. The layout of this historical site – which includes the Industrial Gas Museum, offers a unique atmosphere and is a focal point in the cultural identity of Athens. Technopolis is easily accessible by metro.
Ellada, Giorti, Gefseis, has claimed its place as the most original, qualitative food festival in Greece. Triggered by the demand of both visitors and exhibitors, it is hosted twice each year: The spring event in Technopolis, Gazi, is a celebration where quality Greek culinary scene meets intellectual culture through a wide range of happenings (music, street theatre, artistic interventions etc).
