This Anthestiria flower festival takes place every May and has its origins in ancient Greece.

The festival was originally held in Athens in honor of the God Dionysos, the divine protector of the theatre. Anthestiria were also the festivals of souls, plants and flowers, celebrating the rebirth of man and nature.

The modern festivals of Anthestiria held in Cyrus following in the footsteps of those ancient feasts. The word Anthestiria derives from the Greek word anthos meaning flower. Nature's beauty in spring is celebrated during the Anthestiria in May.
