A Greek Folk Journey

Terina Armenakis

Greece is famous for its glorious history, archaeological wealth, democracy and contribution to sciences, but it is also a land of rich folk heritage. A Greek Folk Journey acquaints you with this folk heritage by providing an insight into the abundance of customs, festivals and events to be found in all corners of the country, presented by the month.

Ancient and more recent traditions live on in many of Greece’s cities, towns or the smallest of villages, thanks to the dedication of local communities, cultural associations and local authorities. Many of the events have historic or religious backgrounds, others are contests or sporting competitions, including world-famous marathons, sailing regattas and chess tournaments.

Interesting seasonal produce festivals also feature, such as cherry, watermelon, fig, mushroom, olive and wine festivals. Commercial and agricultural fairs, which have a local flavour and where entertainment and delicacies are offered to visitors, are described to entice you.

And if that is not enough, A Greek Folk Journey serves up regional dishes, helping you to savour the flavours of glorious Greece.
