Chestnut Festival in Agiasos, Lesvos

The 2017 chestnut festival will be on Sunday 12 November.

A chestnut festival is a rare thing to see on an island… or maybe not?? Picturesque Agiassos on Lesvos Island is famous for its chestnut forest and the feast in November is all about welcoming the new harvest. Follow the trails in the forest, pick chestnuts along your way or watch a theatre or music performance, fill your suitcase with cheese, herbs and sweets made by the members of the Women’s Agricultural and Manufacture Cooperative of Agiassos or by other local producers.
