Light Up the Night: Stavros Niarchos Park to Open Its Doors

parko-70The Stavros Niarchos Park in Athens, Greece, will open its doors to the public for the first time, presenting 4 days -and nights- of events that will offer a “future-like experience” to visitors, reflecting the multifaceted program of activities that will take place at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) once it is in operation.
From June 21 to 24, the Stavros Niarchos Park welcomes the first visitors with an exceptional program of activities, which will start late in the afternoon and last all night long until dawn of the morning after. Music, photography, architecture, sports, environmental and creative workshops, all-night video art screenings, an evening race, art, magic and more to come.
The program includes:

  • Guided tours to the Stavros Niarchos Park
  • Documentary screening on the SNFCC
  • Music concerts of Greek and international artists
  • Sports activities for children and adults
  • An evening race from the Panathenaic Stadium to the Stavros Niarchos Park
  • A chess game with Garry Kasparov
  • Creative workshops for children and families
  • from Monday, June 22, to Wednesday, June 24, a three-night video art program entitled “Fireflies in the Night.” Organized by artistic director Robert Storr and curated by Barbara London, Kalliopi Minioudaki and Francesca Pietropaolo, this program of non-stop video screenings features some of the best video art produced internationally in one of the quintessential media of the late 20th and 21st centuries.

Admission will be free to all events. A detailed program of the events will soon be available at
For safety reasons, entrance might be limited to a first-come first-served basis, as the site is still under construction. The evening race will require pre-registration. The online form will be available soon. Due to limited capacity, registration to some events might be required on the day, at the venue of the event.
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is one of the world’s leading private international philanthropic organizations, making grants in the areas of arts and culture, education, health and sports, and social welfare. The Foundation funds organizations and projects that are expected to achieve a broad, lasting and positive impact for society at large, and exhibit strong leadership and sound management. The Foundation also actively seeks to support projects that facilitate the formation of public-private partnerships as an effective means of serving public welfare.
