Mill of Performing Arts was held for the first time in September 2014, as an initiative of SMouTh which was embraced by the Mayoralty of Culture and Science of the Municipality of Larissa. Since 2016, the Mayoralty co-organises the festival together with SMouTh who is holding the artistic coordination. In 2018, in collaboration with the Greek National Opera, the festival hosted the national meeting of music theatre companies. Since 2017 a part of the festival is dedicated to the inclusion and accessibility, and in 2020 it was fully accessible.
