Every other month sees Cyprus hosting a plethora of activities and festivals. The Kataklysmos (Festival of the Flood) is a three-day affair taking place in June. The most important annual religious festival is Orthodox Easter. After the midnight mass, bonfires are lit and effigies of Judas, the traitor, are burned.

Many cultural events take place in Cyprus, including the Curium Drama Festival (throughout July and August) showcasing classical and modern drama, music and ballet. The Nicosia International Arts Festival in May is also another enjoyable event. Free wine and folk dancing can be enjoyed at the Limassol Wine Festival held in September.

In the north of the country, tourists can experience Islamic festivals like Ramadan and the New Year.
