Famous Food Festivals around Greece! Reviews
Oct 05, 2007
A common feature of Greek people is gathering and celebrating in every possible occasion! Such a case is a 'food festival', a one (or more) day fiesta where natives and visitors of a certain Greek region (mostly country villages or small towns) get together in order to have fun and 'honor' the local food specialties! Apart from the delicious food, you will meet new people, laugh, drink a lot of wine and ouzo and dance until the daybreak!
In the next lines are summarized only some of these festivals...If it happens to be near these places, feel free to visit them and you will get a lot of fun and...food (into the brackets are written the exact villages of the fiestas and the dates, while outside are written the more known towns/regions that are closer to them)!
