Summer never ends in Aegina, one of the Saronic Gulf’s most beautiful islands. With mild weather throughout the autumn, you have the chance to enjoy swimming and sunbathing at any of its exceptional beaches, as well as fresh seafood in the island’s water-side ouzo bars.
The 2014 Aegina Fistiki Fest is yet another reason to visit the island. The Festival will be held for the fifth consecutive time this year from September 18 to 21.
The heart of the Aegina Fistiki Fest is at the island’s port, where visitors will find more than 60 booths along the pier serving pistachios in countless forms. Taste fresh, roasted, salted or unsalted, and sweetened pistachios, as well as a variety of pastries, spoon sweets, chocolate creations, etc. There will also be a number of local products for sale, such as honey and cheeses, clay artefacts, handmade jewellery, and much more.
The Aegina Fistiki Fest is now a tradition, organized by the Municipality of Aegina, under the auspices of the Regional Unit of the Saronic Islands. Its success depends heavily on the cooperation between pistachio and other local producers, as well as on the contribution of the artists and volunteers coordinated by its organizing committee.
The Festival features traditional singing and dancing, theatrical shows, seminars and guided tours of local museums and archaeological sites.
Gastronomy will also be taking centre-stage, with famous chefs cooking incredible culinary dishes right before your eyes. Many of these dishes feature pistachios, which are a PDO product. In the Gastronomy Corner you will find the famous Aegina pistachios and various delectable recipes.
