Every year, the Agros Community Council hosts a two-weekend festival with various activities.  Visitors can explore local workshops and learn about the distillation of roses. They can also browse the rose exhibition through kiosks selling traditional products. Throughout the festival, folk dance and music performances are offered for everyone to enjoy. Delicious food and drinks are available at the kiosks, and a community train offers rides and walks for people of all ages. Additionally, all village sights are open to the public during the festival. This is a free event; you can purchase food, snacks, and drinks separately.

This year’s event will be held over two weekends: May 11-12 and 18-19, 2024.

If you want to enjoy this, I advise you to visit early in the morning to avoid the crowds. It’s still not hot, and you’ll find a nearby parking space.

During the festival, visitors have the chance to see and enjoy various exhibitions of products made of local roses, learn more about the procedure of making rose water, enjoy a traditional dance program and traditional music and taste some products made of rose also as other Cypriot traditional products.

Get to visit the Rose factory which is one of the most interesting and characteristic spots in Agros. You will be toured around the factory and hear how rose water is made, from which roses, when and long does it take to produce. You’ll get to try rose water, rose chocolates, hand creams, liquors, and even toothpaste (everything that has to do with cosmetics is considered to be organic).
