* Dates vary from year to year
Hydra's calendar is dominated by the Greek Orthodox Religion. The year is punctuated by religious sevices which, in spite of their serious nature, add an 'inclusive' atmosphere to island life on a regular basis with many colourful processions as part of church services.
Visitors are more than welcome to watch and, to a certain degree, take part in some of the traditions particularly with Pascha (Orthodox Easter).
There are also Hydra specific annual events such as the Miaoulia and Kountouriotis Festivals and the National Bank Holidays of Independence Day and Ochi Day.
Hydrama, the Hydra's Trail Event, the Equine Vet's Autumn Surgery and the Rebetika Festival add even more local colour to our busy diaries in Hydra.
And when you add all the art exhibitions, dance and musical concerts, there really isn't a day during the summer when there isn't a choice of what to do in Hydra Island, Greece!
