This paper presents a documented and substantiated outline of the non-formal and informal learning pathways that can be generated during the organization and participation in socio-cultural events, with special emphasis on the experience gained from the Multilingualism Festival held in Thessaloniki during the last seven years.

That way, as a result of the work we have done with youth workers and educators who have regularly participated in the organization of the festival, the document presents, first of all, the theoretical discussion on the possible ways of learning of the festival, as an example to be extrapolated to other sociocultural activities; second, it shares some details about the research and its methodology; and finally, it exposes the analysis of the empirical material.
