The Festival of the olive and olive oil in Sellasia

 

A three-day event takes place every year, at the beginning of August, in Sellasia, where the olive tree is truly celebrated for its value and the nutritional importance of the premium quality laconic olive oil. Launched in 2004, the festival is now an institutional tradition, attracting over fifteen thousand visitors a year.

During the event you can go around the stands in the exhibition and see touch-on the equipment used in the cultivation of the olive, an exhibition of child paints, a photo gallery on olive trees and olive oil, a fully equipped taverna whose role is to promote the local Mediterranean cuisine by providing gourmet dishes based on olives and olive oil. You can also get a guided tour in the Museum of the Olive Tree and participate in music events. You will have the opportunity to learn about as well as taste the premium quality olive produce of Laconia’s land, to delve into the history of the olive tree, to learn about how it is grown organically and how its by-products are used.

In these three full-of-action days you will see with your own eyes that it is with good reason that the festival is considered tops in promoting the holy olive tree and its products.
