Self-organized Traditional Feast

Some of Kefalonia's best musicians will be joining in. We’ll have violin, guitar, bouzouki, baglama, mandolin, oud, piano as well as other traditional and non, instruments. However, the more the merrier! So, bring your own instrument to the fair, and let’s become a great big music company!

The Sunday buffet will be on a voluntary basis, which means that we all bring tasty food and exchange the flavors! Finger food is served easier so it is preferable. Home-made patties, potato dishes, crunchy croquettes, personal favorites, cool salads - everything that is made with fresh garden products is more than welcome!

Bring your own instrument to the fair, and let’s become a great big music company!


Instructions to the festival

Free Entrance. For some activities contributions would be  greatly appreciated.

A bar will be serving on all three days. On Sunday, since its ‘bring your own food party’, the food is free!

Take care of the venue by disposing cigarettes properly (bring your own ashtray) and by choosing the right bins for your rubbish; recycling, or plain rubbish.

If you want to sit in maximum comfort, bring your own cushion!
