What’s on in Zakynthos – 02 & 03 March

SATURDAY, 2nd MARCH

THE FESTIVAL OF THE GLAOUNA

Where – at the old school in Kallithea, headquarters of the Cultural Association of Kallithea “Koukesi”.

When – from 12.00 to 18.00 (originally planned for 24/02, postponed due to bad weather).

For the 5th year the celebration  of the traditional Zakynthian pancake – Glaouna.

The festival of the Glaouna is supported by several sponsors, cultural clubs with their dance groups, the club of chefs of Zakynthos and of course music, dance and plenty of Glaounas and a lot of bbq’ing. During the day, very nice and interesting gifts will be drawn.

Glaouas were made by the Zakynthians when they had strangers in their homes as a treat, as a dessert, but it was also very famous when friends gathered to celebrate the finish of olives. This custom is now a celebration not only for our homes but for all the Zakynthians and the foreigners who have visited the island. The “Glaounas” Festival is an opportunity to join us and celebrate all together in the village of Kallithea.
