Music on the water on a Corfu holiday

Taking place at the beginning of August, the Vararola festival is an occasion where the locals come to life and entertain each other as well as visitors.

They take to the sea on their boats and sing to the watching crowds who enjoy their melodies from the coast.

The festival has several versions and communities from all over the island celebrate the event.

In Corfu Town the choirs fill the bay of Gaios and sing cantades to the waiting crowds while fireworks light up the sky.

Alternatively, Corfu has many other festivals for holiday makers staying in a Corfu villa at different times over the summer.

The Corfu Town cricket festival gives travellers a home from home while the Feats of Agios Spyridon celebrates the patron saint of the island.
