The Urban Picnic festival began to be carried out for the first time in 2012 and since then it is repeated at the end of August each year. Its aim is to unite the people of the city and to give them the opportunity to enjoy the city of Thessaloniki and in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere such one that a pic nic can provide.
The Urban pic nic festival is hosted for three days in the area of the old Roman market, one of the most famous monuments of Thessaloniki which dates back to Roman times and is located in the heart of Thessaloniki. It’s a really wonderful place for such an activity.
During the festival, many of the emerging but also known city bands give concerts every evening and every night a movie is also displayed (on an open space inside the Roman market). The people who visit the site of the Roman market have also the potential to make a pic – nic and see the Museum of the Roman Agora.
If you find yourself in Thessaloniki in late August is definitely worth going to this festival. It is a unique experience that you will enjoy for sure.
