Psimeni Raki festival takes place on July 26 every year in Katapola’s main square. You have the opportunity to see up close how this excellent beverage is made. Psimeni raki is still done in the traditional way by the island villagers and its repuitation has spread throughout Greece. The celebration continues by welcoming a boat carrying young dancers wearing traditional dresses. They are received by local musicians and the dancing starts. Psimeni raki is offered along with local delicacies such as Pasteli (local sesame seed candy with honey) and Anevates (pie with cheese and Raki).
