Welcome to the festival!

Mussel Festival

Makrygialos, a small Greek fishing village with 2500 inhabitants, has become a well-known holiday resort. One of the greatest events of the area has maintained the tradition of the Mussel Festival held in July for three decades.

You cannot only perceive the glittering mussel farms, situated couple of hundreds of meters off the shore, from the beach visited by both locals and tourists but also from the settlements nearby. The mussel ’festoons’ rocking on the Aegean Sea seem to be pearls on a string embellishing the surface of the sea shining brightly. It is one of the sights that makesMakrygialos unique in contrast to other Greek resorts.
