September at SNFCC
Μost of us have returned to the city, and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is ready to welcome you with a program full of activities and events to make the transition a little easier, offering a pleasant escape from everyday life in the city.
In Greece, the summer continues well into the autumn. What better way to enjoy September’s sweet weather than a host of musical choices in open, free spaces?
The anticipated Parklife concert series returns in September, too, with two different editions at the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Park: Parklife Traditional, featuring Ross Daly Quintet & Martha Mavroidi Trio, and Parklife Melody, with two especially melodic musical outings, Marina Satti & Fonέs+, as well as Evanthia Reboutsika and George Perris.
Also in September, the exploration of the Greek alternative scene continues with the popular Music Escapades, presenting Leon of Athens & Fonέs+, and Serafim Tsotsonis.
This month’s musical offerings are completed by Jazz Chronicles, which return with two dynamic jazz ensembles: Theo Kapilidis Quartet and a collaboration between American saxophonist Craig Handy and Yiannis Kassetas and his band.
In September, SNFCC’s outdoor screenings, Park Your Cinema, are titled The Great… Out There – showcasing how cinema has captured on film, the imaginary, the grandness of nature, all that fills us humans with awe. On the other hand, Park Your Cinema Kids presents films produced by the legendary Walt Disney, Pixar and Illumination studios.
Of course, there’s also a generous helping of popular outdoor activities, including sailing, kayaking and games for the whole family, plus the adventurous Climbing Wall, while you get ready for dancing the Boogie Woogie at the Social Ballroom, this time celebrating September’s full moon.
Lastly, in view of the European Mobility Week, SNFCC promotes sustainable mobility with an entire week dedicated to cycling between 16 and 22 September.
Once again, admission to all SNFCC sports, educational and cultural events is free of charge thanks to the exclusive grant of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, offering visitors from Greece and all around the world the opportunity to be actively involved in our daily activity.

SNFCC has earned the Platinum LEED certification as a green building, the highest distinction for environmental and sustainable buildings. LEED certification verifies that a building was designed and constructed following rigorous principles of sustainable construction and environmentally innovative practices that focus, among other metrics,
on water and energy efficiency, reduction of CO2 emissions, indoor environmental quality and the rational management of resources. SNFCC is the first cultural project of such scale to earn the LEED Platinum Certification in Europe.
