Festivals

Plays were performed as part of festivals, at particular times of year. For instance when grapes were harvested (autumn) and when the new wine vintage was opened for the first time (Spring) the Greeks would honour DIONYSOS, the god of wine. Wine and Olive Oil were very important to the Greeks they were used in their daily lives and their religious ceremonies as well as trading them with other countries.

Sporting games were held to celebrate specific great events and some festivals relate to particular places Mount Olympus was believed to be the home of the gods and was the site of the Olympic Games.
