Panigiraki is one of the 100 events in the world that you have to watch even once in your life. It is a festive weekend that takes place in Arahova every year (in the spring) and is dedicated to the patron saint George. However, with the Panigyraki, at the same time Arachova also celebrate the victorious battle against the Turks on 24/11/1826, as well as the memory of G. Karaiskakis. A series of events that organized by local authorities, turn Arachova into the ultimate travel destination.
The visitors of the village participate and experience morals and customs, whose roots have been lost over the years. Some of them are the dance of the elders (locals dressed in traditional costumes), the uphill road of men (young and old in the battleground of Karaiskakis with local costume), "Fair of the Feast", is in fact an authentic Arahovian feast in courtyard of the church of St. George with food, drink and traditional music, etc. More information: http://www.panigiraki.gr/
