The seaside town of Loutraki, located near the Corinth canal in the Peloponnese, is planning to host a gastronomy festival in June 2022 with the aim to introduce travelers to the region’s cuisine and products.
Following a decision by the Loutraki Tourism Organization, the event will be organized by Greek tourism marketing company Respond on Demand on an annual basis, for three years, starting in 2022.
The two-day festival will take place under the auspices of the Loutraki-Perachora-Agioi Theodoroi Municipality with the support of the restaurants – members of the Xenios Zeus Association.
The festival’s aim is for Loutraki to attract more Greek and international visitors every year.
It will include wine and food tasting events, actions to promote local products, thematic routes in the city, and presentations of local recipes and beverages.
Loutraki authorities will present the festival’s objectives to locals, visitors, journalists and representatives of tourism agencies during an event to be held in the city on October 9 (if health circumstances permit).
Meanwhile, Respond On Demand will promote the festival to a large number of foreign tourism agencies through its database.
Located near Athens, Loutraki every summer attracts domestic and international travelers, as well as many Athenians who own or rent a holiday residence there.
