Cultural Events

Every year the majority of Pelion villages organize several cultural events, festivals, which draw the touristic attention to each of them and give them life during that period. In these festivals local people have the chance to honor the patron saint and the visitors can enjoy local products. During the summer such festivals are very often and can be found in almost every village.

Other kinds of festivals in honor of other events or even local traditional products are also held. In summertime, cultural events which are called ”Argonautica” take place in Afissos. Another one is Tsipouro festival in Katichori, in early June, where a representation of the way tsipouro is prepared is accompanied by traditional music and songs. Tsipouro is served to the visitors. A similar event takes place in late July in Stagiates , the Sausage festival, where the way sausages are made is presented to public and sausages are given to villagers. The cherry festival in Agios Lavrentios, the pear festival in Milies, the Apple festival in Zagora and the chestnut festival in Xourichti are also some of the traditional festivals that highlight the local products in a festive atmosphere with music , dancing and songs.
