CULTURAL EVENTS

Several events such as the “Palouzes” Festival (penultimate Sunday of September), the four-day Festival for the 15th of August, the two-day Easter events (Sunday and Monday of Easter), theatrical performances, cleaning campaigns and tree plantings are organised and held in the village every year. All the above events are organised by the Community Council and the Association of Expatriates of Lofou. The Ecclesiastical Committee of Lofou holds the religious celebrations for the Annunciation of Virgin Mary (25th March) and for the name-days of Prophet Elias (20th July) and Agia Marina (17th July). Moreover, the Football Athletic Union of Lofou (P.A.E.L) holds a carnival dance during the carnival period. Finally, for the past two years private music producers have been organising the “Feggaros” Festival which hosts singers and rock and “entehno” bands from Cyprus, Greece and abroad.  

The primary school of the village constitutes the main events venue. It is a neoclassical building with two large classrooms, each of which can host events with approximately 70-80 participants. The school yard, where the outdoor events are held, can host up to 1600 people (tables and chairs) and more than 2500 people (chairs only). Events can also be held at the square of the village, which will be renovated in the near future. The square in question can host events with up to 200 participants. 

The events are mainly sponsored by the Cooperative Credit Society of Ipsonas Lofou, the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Youth Board of Cyprus. The big Festival of the 15th of August is also financially supported by numerous private sponsors. Presented in the table below are the aforementioned events:
