This is from the Green Corfu.

Arillas is famous for its festivals. Especially the last 3-4 years, our festivals have been visited by ever more people, the team of locals helping out with the organization is growing and the festivals themselves are continually being upgraded. 

Here is the program for this year's festivals:

•   Analipsi (Ascension) Festival is on Thursday 29 May 2014. This festival is held up by the village church that is dedicated to the Ascension of Christ.
•   Antamoma (Get together) Festival is on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 August 2014. It is held at the central festival grounds, about 100m from the main Arillas crossing, under the olive trees. It is a chance for Arilliots living around the world to come together and usually dancing groups from other parts of Greece or abroad are invited to dance.
•   The Wine Festival is on Saturday 6 September 2014, at the central festival grounds and includes traditional wine making using old tools, barrels and a donkey. Visitors can participate. Local wine from last year is served for free all night, as long as you buy a hand-painted carafe!
•   The Corfu Beer Festival is held up by the Corfu Beer grounds for five days, between 8 and 12 October 2014. This year's theme is Corfu Meets the UK, so there will be beers, music and dancers from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, as well as local Corfu Beer, food and entertainment.

Well that's something to look forward to Elliemay.

Jesus wants me as a sunbeam. And a jolly good sunbeam am I.

Arriving on the 4th of August so we'll miss out by a day but we will still have a fantastic holiday anyway, hope all who are able to attend any of the festivals have a fantastic time.
