New Year’s Enthusiasm in Marmaris
Marmaris approached the year 2023 with energy and unity. In Marmaris, the world’s pearl, the excitement around the New Year is still going strong. Everyone from 7 to 70 enjoys the New Year’s Bazaar and nightly musical events hosted on 19 May Youth Square thanks to the Marmaris Municipality.
The New Year’s Bazaar, which was inaugurated in Marmaris on May 19 as the city prepared to ring in the new year, is a popular gathering place for both locals and visitors. Since it was established, the area, where a variety of goods are presented for sale, from local goods to souvenirs, from books to paintings, from local delicacies to toys in all areas of Turkey, has drawn a lot of attention. New year’s enthusiasm in Marmaris is really cool.
Particularly local residents who express delight with the accessibility of local goods buy here for New Year’s. Products unique to Marmaris are sold at the stand established by Marmaris Agricultural Development Cooperative (MARKO), including laurels, pine honey with geographical indications, and peanuts with geographical indications. Handcrafted goods made by women are also displayed in the area of Marmaris Women’s Initiative Production and Business Cooperative (MAKKO).
The illuminated gift package figure, the photographic area with the “seagull” logo, the symbol of Marmaris, and the 2023 lettering installed at the entrance of the area where it was opened are the spots frequently used by those who want to immortalize the moment. The stand was opened for Zehra Bebek from SMA.
Welcoming those who come for New Year’s shopping and sightseeing all day long, 19 May Youth Square welcomes the citizens with music in the evening. Every evening between 18.00-20.00, Marmaris’s favorite artists, local bands and school groups give a musical feast at the ‘Performance Stage’ established in the area. Citizens also show great interest in the event, which enables young musicians to relieve their excitement and gain self-confidence.
