The Artichoke Festival in Komi village, Tinos

A celebration of the artichoke. One among the many local products of Tenos island. Every year, women from the village of Komi create traditional recipes based on the artichokes that are harvested on the valley of Komi a few hundred meters away!

The festival takes place at the “Plateia” or central square of the village of Komi sometime during the first days of June. It all depends on the harvest.

Under the century old plane trees visitors taste various dishes prepared with local artichokes and enjoy the music and the beautiful weather in June.

A jolly nice experience…
