The Feast of the Transfiguration of the Savior


The church of the village celebrates on the 6th of August and since it was built the festival that is still organized every summer has also been established. The festival is two days long with live traditional music, food, drink and dance. The evening begins, on the eve of August 5, after the evening service, and culminates the next night, on the day of ‘Sotiros’.


The Festival of Prophet Elias


The peculiarity of this festival is that it is mobile. It takes place on the first Sunday after the 20th of July – Feast of the Prophet Elias – in the rebuilt chapel located on one of the successive northeastern peaks of Omalia. This event, organized by the Association of Elatians, gives the opportunity to Elatians and their friends to gather on the hill of Ai-Lia and celebrate all together in nature. Put on sunscreen and a hat and get some blankets to lay on the grass.


The Rebetiki night of August


Every year, around the 15th of August, a musical evening is organized in the village with the band of Takis Kerasias. The music is mainly rebetiko and traditional and the fun every year and more! Information regarding the exact date that changes each year can be found on the club’s facebook page.
