Hi Violator,
Are you sure it's the 14th and not the 15th which is The Assumption Of The Virgin Mary and a big festival throughout Greece?

Festivals often go on for two nights now- the 'eve' and the festival itself- which in the case of the Assumption of the Virgin is definitely 15th August

A while ago, I contacted Kostas at the Solaris apartments where we are staying in September and he has confirmed there will be a wine festival, but the date has not been set yet.

Hi,
Yes that is what I am waiting for. Local information so that I can amend the initial post. x
Same with the Kavadades festival which will also be some time in September.

Funny that.
Perhaps they mean the first folk festival organised by Kassiopi.
I remember there used to be an annual International Folk Dance festival at Kassiopi harbour every year until they altered the road layout.
The last time I saw it was when there was the famouse Dance troup from Nausa, who performed the dance where the men drop straight down onto their knees and straight back up onto their heels with a stamp, wearing white masks molded to their faces with little painted mousetaches on them, and their costume included chain mail made up of ancient coins linked together across their chests, I've still got some that dropped off somewhere.
The Sinies International Folk Dance Festival now concentrates on Sinies and Corfu Town. This year was the 16th.
Regardless, it will be a great spectacle, with loads of enthusiasm. I wish we were there to see it.
Bob.

From the Green Corfu Blog

We are near the first weekend of August and like every year, in Arillas we have the yearly Antamoma festival. Antamoma in Greek means "get together" or "reunion", and it is the chance for Arilliots from around the world to meet, talk, eat and dance together.

This festival is also a meeting on another level, as every year dancing groups from other parts of Greece and even abroad come to Arillas to dance.  This year we even have two dancing groups, one from Kavala and one from Portaria on Mount Pilion. Of course, the local dancing club of Arillas will also perform.

Souvlakia, dumplings, Corfu Beer and lots of dancing this Saturday AND Sunday in Arillas, at the olive grove 300 meters from the beach. Come and get together with us!!!

Dumplings Elliemay? Do you mean loukoumades- could be translated as doughnuts maybe, but dumplings...no!

Hi Jan.
Yes I do know that they are loukoumades but as you will see that is a copy of the details from The Green Corfu Blog. Blame them not me. Wink
