Varkarola Fest 2013

With great success, the Varkarola Fest took place for another year, in Saint Nicholas port, in the area of Skinari Volimon.

Many visitors, not only Greeks but also tourists from Italy, England, and Russia, on Sunday the 18th of August 2013, flooded the picturesque port, that wore its official costume, offering its guests the opportunity to enjoy the, almost, full moon having a romantic small boat trip under the sounds of traditional music of Zante, to taste local tidbits and wine, to have fun dancing dances of Zakynthos and of the rest Ionian islands, to remember the elders and learn the youngsters of songs that have their own history in music industry and of course to buy souvenirs and other products from the flea market that was settled on the jetty.

The fest started shortly after 21.30 while the crowd that had gathered, as it was expected, much earlier, was this year more than any other previous time, showing that Varkarola is an institution that has been loved by the people and is also the best advertisement of Zakynthos island and especially of the northern part of the island.

See you all next year in Varkarola Fest 2014…
