Back in 2014, I posted about a revival after 2,000 years of Phallephoria, the festival of Dionysus in the city of Athens, rain or not.
There was a break for Covid, but now it’s back. And look how many people are following the costumed participants now! Look at the 2014 video and then at this one to see the difference!
Some dancers are still wearing body suits — well, it is February.
Not everyone wants to live and breathe Paganism 24/7. But give them something to participate in, and they will be there. Don’t turn your backs on the polis.
After all, the polis wants to put it in the tourist guide. Learn more from the organizers’ website.
