Thanks Elliemay,

Vakarola 2011 was on Sunday 7th August.  So unsure of the date for this year.

Hi Alison,
It's really confusing isn't it. Only in Greece. Lol.
If you're going for 2 weeks all I can suggest is spanning either side of the 11th unless you can get local information from someone in Corfu, but then it can change due to the weather or some other unforeseen happening.

Slightly off topic.
I've just picked up this info, there is a planned Seminar of Greek folk dances, to be  located in Lefkimi, from 28th July to 4 August, three professional teachers, one Cretan one Pontic, the third would probably mixed maybe Ionian,with another suprise teacher rumoured. If my rusty French has got it right, demi pension means half board, there will be 4 hours of instruction each day, 580e per participant.

I think the Vakarola in Kalami is on the same date as Paleo. It's on the second Saturday in August (I think). It was on this day two years and also three years ago.  The big problem is that these celebrations can all be cancelled if anyone dies and as many accidents in cars or scooters seem to happen in the summer months they seem to get cancelled often.

Hi Mr-Mythos,
It is the Ascension festival in Arillas today as stated in the initial post.

http://www.arillas.com/ascension


There should also be panegyris in Analipsi and Kato Korakiana.

Hi,
No idea of the start time. Why not meander your way to Arillas, enjoy the village and ask the locals when it starts?

2nd of July is the Panigiri of Vlacherena. It's the famous small church in Kanoni area.
In the initial post it says Garitsa, the correct location is Kanoni, just where you take the boat to Mouse Island.
You can have coffee in Kanoni,enjoy the landing and take offs and then have some fan by the beach.

Does anyone know anything more about the San Rocco square festival on 13th July? We arrive on the 12th so I am considering catching the bus into town the next day to have a look.

There was a small festival in Lacones last night (6th July) apparently the first one ever. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and music.

Oh dear, another senior moment due to Mythos, the festival was in Doukades NOT Lacones, sorry!
It's all Greek to me!
