Traditional Fairs

Today in Santorini we celebrate Saint Paraskevi, and it is an opportunity for you to experience a Greek tradional custom. We are talking about a fest taking place in the churches the day when the name of the saint to whom the church is dedicated is celebrated. If you have never been to such a fest before, try to attend today, it’s worth it. One of the most famous today is held in the church between Monollithos area and Kamari, under the airport. After the morning service, the icon of the saint will be carried around the church and then the fest will begin.

Cooked Greek traditional food, bread, and of course much wine will be served to everyone. Equally interesting fairs are the ones in Megalochori, and especially to Emporeio, where there will be traditional music players as well.
