The municipality of Athens released the schedule for the Greek pre-Lent carnival (Apokries) events on Monday, saying it has planned 80 events at 55 points in the city and its neighborhoods.

The pre-Lent festivities will begin at 11:30 am on Tsiknopempti (March 7) with music and events around Varvakios Market, Monastiraki Square, and the surrounding streets. At 12:00 the Vakhai musical society will start performing at Syntagma Square and move through Kotzia Square to end up at Monastiraki Square.

The large annual parade will take place on Sunday (March 17) in the center of the city with entertainers and musicians.

Events will conclude on Clean Monday (March 18) at Filoppapou Hill, with flying of kites and ‘koulouma’, the celebration of the first day of Lent in the outdoors with a picnic of non-meat dishes. The Philharmonic Orchestra of Athens and the Charisma band will play music.

Athens Mayor Charis Doukas said that “for 23 days every neighborhood in our city will be inundated with music, dance, song, and traditional events,” inviting all “to come and participate in the joy together.”
