A Holiday Getaway to the Greek Village of Vamvakou, No Travel Required

ATHENS — The holiday season may be different this year, but that’s no reason not to celebrate it—especially when you can do so without changing out of your slippers. Vamvakou Revival is bringing the festive atmosphere of the cozy Greek mountain village of Vamvakou to you!

On Tuesday, December 8 at 18:00 (EET), grab a comfy seat and let yourself be transported to Mount Parnon to watch as the Christmas tree in Vamvakou’s square is illuminated and the little village’s big decorations are unveiled. To the holiday traditions that bring us together—singing carols, exchanging gifts, sharing moments of nostalgia—add joining the live countdown to the lighting of Vamvakou’s tree, a new tradition for our new normal.

Tuesday, December 8 at 18:00 (EET), at vamvakourevival.org

The events are organized by the Vamvakou Revival team with support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
