Vedema at Thirasia

Every year around these days, at our neighbor island, the “Vedema” is celebrated, a traditional fiesta about the grapes harvesting. The event is dedicated to the winegrowers that continue with devotion the tradition of viticulture and of the cultivation of the outstanding local grape varieties on the island of Thirasia. During the ceremonies, the theatrical group Akrotiri will present a show, and after that a traditional feast will follow. There will be live music and dancing, plenty of food and wine, free for all the visitors.

For the guests’ better service, a scheduled boat will depart from Ammoudi bay towards Riva at 19.00 and will be back at around 00.30 after midnight.
