The Carnival of Rethymnon is an age-old cultural event overflowing with creativity and inspiration. It is a custom that the Municipality of Rethymnon tries to support and to enrich in every possible way each year.
However, most important of all, are those volunteers who with all their hard work, enthusiasm and dedication make it all happen! It is all of these volunteers, young and old, whose passionate support and inspiration make this special event come together.
Rethymnon, through its carnival, is able to reflect its long and interesting history, its traditions and the unique qualities that make the Rethymnians so special.
Many years before...
After a century of celebrating the carnival,this year is the centinary of the carnival, it is time to bid farewell and to pass on the carnival tradition to modern times.
Since 1914 beautiful Renaissance Rethymnon has been celebrating the carnival with its many humoristic events. A carnival of another era leaving behind its nostalgic aroma of romantic balls and the Rethymnians through laughter and their comical antics paying their tribute to "His Excellence, The King of the Carnival."
The Treasure Hunt, an old custom dating back to when the Carnival of Rethymno began about a century ago, was the reason for the creation of 'teams' in 1990, which would give birth once again to this age-old tradition.
