The Sardine Festival in Skala Polichnitou has been held for at least 30 years and attracts visitors from all over Lesvos and from abroad to enjoy live cooking, dancing and of course … tidbits of the famous sardines from the Gulf of Kalloni, prepared in various ways and accompanied of course by Lesvos ouzo!

The festivities in Skala Polichnitos will start with a special event. Chef Harris Katrakazas from Polichnitos with author Nikos Mastropavlos and local fishermen will revive cooking recipes based on habits and ingredients used on their boats; recipes that cleverly and creatively use the Kalloni Gulf fish and seafood. Food businesses of the wider area will then offer dishes inspired by the pots of the fishing boats. The “Balos” Traditional Dance Association will seal the night with music and dancing.
