Syros Carnival 2019

Συριανό Καρναβάλι 2019 - Syros Carnival 2019
Putting this on the bucket list for a future year: Carnival in Ermoupoli on the island of Syros in the Cyclades, Greece. Syros Carnival is a three-day-event with festivities on the Saturday night - the traditional Zeibekia (masquerade) custom in Markos Vamvakaris Square - in Ano Syros, a procession along the harbour front on the Sunday afternoon that culminates in dancing in Miaoulis Square, with a Latin party on the Protopapadaki pedestrian street and, on Καθαρή Δευτέρα (Ash Monday or Clean Monday), the customs of Koulouma with kite flying in the countryside and particularly in Gallissas village.

The dates of Clean Monday in Greece let us work out when this carnival takes place.
