Connecting People, Traditions & Generations

The island of Thassos is referred to as “Greece’s Best Kept Secret.” It sits near the northern coast, surrounded by the gorgeous blue waters of the Aegean Sea. Unique shops, restaurants, cafés, and bars line the lively streets. The natural beauty and welcoming culture make this island the perfect vacation destination.

This year, the International Folk Dance Festival “Emerald Island” will take place on the Greek island Thassos for the second time. The global event spans over 6 days from September 18-23, 2015 and celebrates live, love, and friendship through music and dance. Children and youth folklore groups, vocal groups, instrumental groups, choirs, and soloists are invited to perform. It’s non-competitive and welcomes both traditional and modern styles. The festival will highlight the cultural traditions of numerous different countries and regions, providing an opportunity for attendees and participants from all over the world to unite as one.
