The story of the Vroukounta fair in this sacred spot in Karpathos goes way back. Every year at the end of August locals and visitors alike take on the mountainous trail starting from Avlonas on foot or by boat to reach the little church-like outpost of Agios Ioannis that lies inside this hidden cave. The fair starts at night with a big feast until the early morning hours and everyone settles for a quick impromptu nap outside the church. The morning after everyone attends the church ritual and carry on the fair until late at night.

Known for our adventurous spirit, we follow the event on and report from this beautiful outpost of Greece!
