October Festivals

By in Holiday Blog with 0 Comments

The summer may be ending, taking with it a buzzing cultural agenda and vibrant events yet this does not mark the end of festivals. Hopefully, we have a packed autumn to look forward to. This October numerous festivals are taking place all over the island celebrating all sorts of joys – art, literature, dance, coffee and even cocktails!

Continuing the focus on the arts is the 2021 Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival which arrives again on October 8, 9 and 10 with events all over the island. Three days of performances and events, inspired by the theme of Displacement are planned for the second weekend of October. A dozen projects, performances and events are included where artists share and elaborate on their works as those unfold, describing their process via text, image and sound.

On the same weekend, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10, the 6th Nicosia Book Fest will take over Acropolis Park in Nicosia welcoming authors, cultural institutions, publishers, book lovers, families and more. Over the two days of the festival, book presentations, discussions with authors, workshops, children’s activities and theatre performances will take place. The 6th Nicosia Book Fest will host more than 50 bookstalls and 150 writers and is the ultimate event for lovers of the book world.

An even bigger happening with a large series of events is coming a few days later – the Larnaca Biennale 2021. The grand opening of the esteemed art exhibition will take place on October 13 at the Municipal Art Gallery, revealing the artworks of artists from all over the world based on the curational theme Limitless Limits. More than a month of events, exhibitions and parallel activities are included in the 2nd edition of the Larnaca Biennale that will last until November 26 at the Municipal Art Gallery, the Pierides Museum, the Multispace of Culture and Creativity and around town.

The month will continue to seduce our taste buds as the 2nd Cyprus Cocktail Festival arrives just a few days later. On October 19, the Nicosia Municipal Gardens will host a promising event that has been described by Drinksfeed.com as “one of the best 15 cocktail festivals of the world”! From 7pm onwards, the festival will open its doors to visitors as it welcomes 20 bars that participate in the event – 10 from Cyprus and 10 from Greece and Italy. You can expect music from the organisers, Deejay Radio, and unique cocktails by some of the region’s best bars in a month that seems to be as promising and as eventful as ever.

Taking festival-goers to Lymbia village is the newest edition of Xarkis Festival, a three-day event on October 15, 16 and 17. This 8th edition focuses on the theme Back to the Roots: Environment and Society and invites visitors to explore it through a series of workshops, performances, guided tours, community dinners and art installation. Each evening will end with a live music performance from local artists including the popular and award-winning band Monsieur Doumani.

Down in Limassol another event is being organised for the first time on the island the same weekend. The Limassol Coffee Festival is set to entertain coffee lovers and industry professionals on October 15, 16 and 17. It invites all to socialise, taste exceptional coffees, buy equipment and share knowledge in a full weekend that celebrates coffee. The best coffee brands and roasters, music and street food will make it an even more fun gathering, as the island’s first international coffee festival arrives with exhibitors from Cyprus, Greece, Russia, Israel and Ukraine. The general admission day pass costs €10 online and offers unlimited free coffee drinks and entry-exit on the given day.

The month will continue to seduce our taste buds as the 2nd Cyprus Cocktail Festival arrives just a few days later.
