Events & Festivals

Festivals are an exciting feature of life in North Cyprus, including international music festivals such as the annual Bellapais Music Festival in May-June, which brings together classical musicians from around the world. Festivals also play a big part of Turkish Cypriot cultural life: from the Peace and Freedom festival on July 20 to the harvest celebrations of the orange, grape and olive, the people of North Cyprus love to enjoy themselves at these special events with families, friends and visitors to the island.

A whole host of folklore festivals are also held throughout the year in the castle at Girne and the Othello Tower in Gazimagusa. All are accompanied by the vibrant sound of traditional musicians, colourful folk dancing and plenty of delicious home-style cooking.
