Then, the celebration takes place in the old village School (Scholio) area, where tables are set to welcome the villagers and guests, a traditional Cycladic feast with wine, food and dance.

It takes place each year, on August 15th.

This is the most well-known and anxiously expected festival of each village on Tinos island. Each village celebrates with a great feast, and the preparations take days in order for everything to be perfect. It is the greatest event of all.

Tables are set, meals are prepared, local musicians are gathered from all over Cyclades to honour Virgin Mary's Assumption to the Heavens. The mass in Chora (Tinos) is one of the most famous celebrations in whole Greece and people gather from the entire country to pray and mourn the passing of Virgin Mary. It is a celebration you shouldn't miss..

It is an annual festival that takes place each year, on the Friday after the Easter (Paraskevi tou Pascha). It is a small church outside of the village, and four families of villagers who live in Isternia take on the preparations and the expenses of the festival, by turns.
