East Macedonia & Thrace

Fest of the Christ

Thanks to the Cultural Association of Samothrace many of the customs and traditions that express the religious faith have still been retained and celebrate the feasts of local churches. On August 6 in Chora village, it is celebrated the anniversary of Christ with a morning service at chapel of the Transfiguration of Christ. The locals named the celebration as "Soteras Feast", the night at the traditional feast in the Papa Georgi Square, while its residents are dressed in traditional costumes.
