Each year since 1987 and during summer the Renaissance Festival of Rethimno is held in order to mark the great boom that the city saw during the Venetian era in the field of arts, literature and architecture.
The primary objective of the Renaissance Festival is the preservation and dissemination of cultural heritage from that era, but also the emergence of important Venetian monuments, like the old town and Fortezza.
Until today, the Renaissance Festival has presented numerous major works of the Cretan theater, as well as of other important artists of the Renaissance, like Shakespeare, Goldoni, Moliere, etc.
Of particular interest is the music concerts with instruments of that period where orchestras and musicians from all over Europe participate, the opening and closing ceremonies with artistic events that have as central theme the Renaissance and the parallel events (exhibitions, lectures and films) organized at various locations.
The Carnival of Rethimno is an age-old cultural event overflowing with creativity and inspiration. It is a custom that the Municipality of Rethimno 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.
Rethimno, through its carnival, is able to reflect its long and interesting history, its traditions and the unique qualities that make the Rethimnians so special.
Since 1914 beautiful Renaissance Rethimno 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 Rethimnians 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 Rethimno 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. In 1993, the Municipality of Rethimno decided to help fund this popular event and requested the teams to take on the challenging task of creating and organising the Carnival of Rethimno, which has become the most popular and famous Carnival of Crete!
