Abstract: Abstract Applying Internet of Things solutions to cultural heritage domain is a recent trend following the enormous success of social media and multimedia content distribution technology. In this work we investigate the feasibility of applying such solutions in outdoor cultural events aiming in the enhancement of leisure experience for tourists and the promotion of real-life cultural festivities exploitation for the benefit of local communities. The intervention of mobile-based platforms with tourism and leisure is a challenging field, as it can raise awareness to the broad public and provide digital solutions to public authorities and local businesses on the field. Attempting to provide an answer to those challenges we designed and implemented modern tools that permit tangible and intangible cultural data collection from public authorities and spectators, enhanced dissemination of data to the broader public adapting augmented reality techniques in a friendly manner and local businesses products and services efficient dissemination and exploitation. Our study suggests that such an interaction can be beneficial for local authorities and tourism supporting a sustainable city environment.
