Arillas Festivals 2014

March 12, 2014
Festivals in Arillas, 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. You can read our older posts on the 2013 Antamoma, Wine Festival and Beer Festival. 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.

We will keep this blogpost updated if more events come up, you never know with these Arilliots…!
