Makrinitsa's touristic development begins in the 1960's, when its residents realise
that they have to maintain their characters, to propose their particularities,
their customs and traditions. Their worries find a way out with the establishment
of the "Progressive Association of Makrinitsa", with the revival of the unique
folklore tradition "Maedes" and the erection of the Museum of Folk Art and History
of Pelion. This great cultural intervention led the community at the beginning
of 1990's to the organization of cultural events that were established and their
fame was spread all aver Greece. Since 1991 and every summer from 15th july until
30th september, cultural events named "Makrinitsa" are organized by the community
with painting, photography and sculpture exhibitions, theatrical music and Greek
song concerts and at the peak, the presentation of the folklore tradition "Maedes".
