Limassol successfully operates a programme called “neighbourhood councils” which, among others, provide support to the organisation of various mobile cultural events such as the rotating cultural festival Neighbourhood Day, held every year in different neighbourhoods. For 2020, it was planned to be held in three areas simultaneously but was unfortunately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In collaboration with the neighbourhood councils and the city’s theatre development agency, the city organises “Neighbourhood Theatres” which are open and free for all residents and characterised by a popular and high quality artistic approach. The city also organises satellite events within the traditional city festivities. For example, carnival choirs visit the neighbourhoods during the carnival days, the “Europe day” activities take place outside the main promenade area, and always offers free entrance and intercultural content. Additionally, various sport and cultural events take place regularly all over the city.
