Description - What to expect

Experience a Cretan festival with live music, fun and sensational entertainment. Taste traditional Cretan food, meet wonderful people, embrace the unique sounds of music and the beauty of traditional Cretan dances, and learn the steps of local dance as you immerse yourself in the culture of the island.

The Cretan music tradition is considered the most "alive" of those that exist in Greece. Not only does it continue to evolve through the absorption of creative contemporary musical elements, but at the same time it manages to express and comment on the contemporary realities and challenges of life.

The character of Crete and the Cretans is reflected in music and dance. Cretan feasts & festivals are at the epicenter of these ancient folkways – and probably the best way to experience fun, the true Cretan way. Traditionally connected to a religious celebration, panigiria in Crete have a centuries-old history. Yet spiritual element aside, they also served an important social purpose.

Cretan feasts & festivals offered a prime chance for people to meet and socialize to honor tradition and, take a break from everyday troubles and chores. Still, Cretan festivals remain joyful affairs involving copious amounts of food and drink, traditional live music and ecstatic dancing until the early hours of the morning.
