Armata on Spetses
Monday September 2, 2019 • 10:00AM till 10:00PM
A celebration that takes place every September. It is to mark the battle in the strait between Spetses Island and Kosta during the revolution of 1821. A few weeks before the festival starts, local boat builders set to work making a wooden boat which will be used as an effigy of a Turkish boat in 1821. The Turkish boat is constructed in the old harbor a week before the festival. It begins on a Monday and usually offers a full program, including adult and children's theater, local Greek dance, music and shows. The grand finale is on the Saturday night, closest to the 8th September.
