Athens Urban Picnic
01 May 2023
Plato's Academy Park
Monastiriou 138, Athens
The Athens Urban Picnic launches the Athens City Festival. Located in the Park at Plato’s Academy, this is one of the most historic but less explored neighborhoods of Athens that will soon start playing a big role in the Athens scene when it becomes home to a revived archaeological site and the innovative new Museum of the City of Athens.
Celebrate May Day as summer triumphs over winter. The picnic brings a full day of fun for residents and visitors, including fun activities, educational workshops, shows for children, live concerts and music from local radio favorites HiT 88.9, Enlefko 87.7, and RED 96.3.
Spend an unforgettable May Day with Athens in bloom!
