The Demetria event, a cultural institution on Naxos, is held every year during the first week of August at Sagri, a traditional village and location of the archaeological site of the Temple of Demeter, a sanctuary built in honor of the the goddess of agriculture.

It features mostly agrotourism stalls where visitors may try goods produced by the blessed land of Naxos.

Concerts and theatrical plays take place at the courtyard of Agios Eleftherios, a 17th century monastery, while art exhibitions by established artists are held inside.

Visitors may enjoy the village’s architecture, including the very well preserved stylish metallic front doors of homes, as well as photography exhibitions that take place along the village alleys.

Each year, the event is enriched with new elements that serve to sustain the interest of visitors at high levels.
