The Wine Festival started in Oropos in 1994 at the initiative of local people and the Cultural Association of Louros. Since then, it has been held every year on the first or second Saturday of August in the central square (Aneksartisias Square) of Oropos. The festival is dedicated to and promotes the locally produced wine (there are approximately 25 hectares of vineyards in the area) which on this occasion is offered to the participants for free. A folk band and local dance groups also participate in the event. At the same time, slides are projected showing former events held by the Cultural Association as well as snapshots of wine growing. The organizers estimate that around 2,500 visitors attend this event every year.
