Autumn Cultural Events

 

Robert McCabe photo exhibition on Mykonos autumn 2021

Exhibition of Mykonos photos from the 1950s by Robert McCabe

“The Island that seduced the world — Mykonos in the 50s” is an exhibition of images by noted American photographer Robert McCabe, who first visited Greece in the 1950s and captured portraits of local residents and scenery on subsequent multiple trips to the island and elsewhere in the Aegean.  Exhibits of McCabe’s fascinating photos are on display in two places: from August 1 to October 31 at the archaeological site in the Mykonos Kastro (next to the iconic Paraportiani Church), and from August 4 to December 31 at the Mykonos Archaeological Museum above the Old Port.   

 

What’s on: The 2021 tourist season ended in October for many Mykonos hotels, bars, clubs, restaurants and shops, but that didn’t mean the island shut down completely for the winter.

In fact, many businesses extended their seasons into November, while year-round restaurants and bars kept their doors open for local residents and off-season visitors, as you no doubt noticed from the event notices posted above.  A few brand-new places even opened their doors to offer fresh options for drinking and dining after the tourist-oriented restaurants and bars shuttered for the winter.

If you’re curious to see what events took place from August through November, including parties, venue closings and new business openings, check out our day-by-day listings on page 2 of this post.
