Arillas Andamoma Festival 2014

July 29, 2014

Traditional corfiot weddingThis weekend, just like every first weekend of August for the last 8 years, the Andamoma Festival takes place in Arillas.

On Saturday 2 August there will be the reenactment of a traditional Corfiot wedding. It will start around 20.00 at the beach where the dowry will be carried to the festival grounds. There the whole procedure of bargaining for the dowry, signing the contract with the notary, making the bed and dressing the bride will be reenacted, accompanied by lots of singing. After that there’s dancing, beer and souvlakia for all!

On Sunday 3 August is the second night of the festival, and we will have as guests a traditional dancing group from Cyprus, who will present their own traditional dances.

More on last year’s Andamoma on the Green Corfu blog.

Don’t miss this fantastic festival! And we are looking forward to receiving your pictures from the Andamoma!!!
