Cancellation of Carnival & Koulouma Events (01/03 & 02/03)
Following the respective Ministerial Decision and the announcement of the Region of Attica, the events of SNFCC scheduled for the last Carnival Sunday (01/03) and Clean Monday (02/03) are cancelled.
As a result, free parking at the Faliro Olympic Complex (Taekwondo) will not be available.
The rest of SNFCC events will continue to be held as scheduled.
In case of changes in the events schedule due to public health measures we recommend that you visit our website SNFCC.org for information and updates.
“Making the Kyra Sarakosti is an old custom; our grandmothers used flour and water. The weeks until Easter Sunday would be counted by removing one of seven legs for each week.”
Sculpture and painting bring Kyra Sarakosti to life – a traditional Greek custom that is always a children’s favorite.
The countdown to Easter begins – Kyra Sarakosti lands at the SNFCC on all seven legs!
Each of her seven legs stands for one week, each fold in her dress is a folk symbol. Children will bring her to life using dough and other edible materials and paint her imaginatively, making a unique, improvised calendar inspired by Greek folklore.
