July 5 – October 5: 2nd Santorini Biennale – Artists and designers are called to Santorini to explore the mechanisms of peace in the form of art, and how these can be used to fight against violent actions of war, crisis and conflict. This three month art event addresses the conflict of Peace and War present across all countries, cultures and philosophies.
September 4 – 25: International Music Festival – A two-week festival held at Fira where a sizeable crowd attends performances by international acts.
October 3: Art of Motion – The world’s best free running athletes return every year to astound the crowds. The traditional cobbled, narrow streets, terraces and canopies will again be the playing field for these talented individuals. Santorini has now established itself as one of the top destinations for this growing sport and parkour organisers have concluded that nowhere in the world is there a more beautiful natural “pitch”.
