It is celebrated every October or November, but for the exact date, it is advisable to check with locals in order not to miss that.
Traditionally the Chestnut Festival takes place in the village of Elos, which is situated a short distance from Kissamos on the West part of Crete.
The village of Elos is surrounded by chestnut trees, which form picturesque scenery and, of course, bring the harvest. To mark the coming autumn and proudly demonstrate the chestnut harvest, the local population devotes special attention to the Chestnut Festival.
This small, but authentic happening, gives a chance to Elos to show off its chestnut produce and attract quite some curious visitors over the weekend, which is reserved for this extraordinary event.
Travelers can expect music, dancing, eating, and drinking as essential parts of the celebration. And of course great traditional food.
For your stay, our nearby Milia Traditional Village could be the best option.
Milia Mountain Retreat & Eco Hotel, up in the mountains of western Crete in the Chania region, has endless hiking paths, wooded hillsides, and is far away from it all. The alternative, ecologically sound collection of stone buildings with matching taverna and natural foods - somehow just staying here should prove meaningful.
