Fair in Kontochori

If you want to take a taste of the authentic, traditional Santorini, today is your chance!
So tonight, in the church of St. Aristides, on the way to Exo Gialos vespers will take place at 19.00, to honour the Saint who celebrates on Saturday. Then, at 21.00, free fava and wine will be offered, while the Pontic Association of Santorini “Akrites” as well as the dance group "Rodo" from Rodopoli, Athens will present traditional dances. The Pontic Association presents itself with traditional outfits, which are replicas of the authentic ones that have originally come from the region of Pontos (today Black Sea) and performs impressive dances as they were practiced by the 1st generation refugees.
On Saturday morning, at 07.30, the mass will be celebrated and procession of the icon will follow, honoured by the presence of the local Bishop, Epiphanios. At 10.30, coffee and pastries will be shared.
