Each September, the village plays host to the International Eressos Woman's Festival. Organized by a local businesswoman, this event draws huge crowds for two weeks of parties, live music, comedians, cabaret and visual art. The 2016 festival plans to add a fashion show and triathlon, making this one of the most comprehensive women-only events in the entire region. The island as a whole also celebrates a number of religious festivals - many with pagan roots - that have fascinating traditions including ritual processions and feasts. Tourists cannot participate in the more religious aspects, but are welcome to join in as spectators.
