Mykonos parties, DJ shows and events during August 2021


Updated on Wednesday July 14


Mykonos XLSIOR Festival 2021 cancellation announcement 01

Mykonos XLSIOR Festival 2021 cancellation announcement

Today (Tuesday July 13), the Mykonos XLSIOR Festival posted this notice on social media to announce the cancellation of this year’s event — scheduled for late August — and to explain the reasons for its decision. This is the result of new restrictions the Greek government has imposed on bars, nightclubs, cinemas and other entertainment venues to control the sharp increase in the number of Covid cases the country has experienced during the past two weeks. The restrictions require that all patrons in indoor bars, clubs, restaurants and entertainment venues must remain seated (no dancing allowed), and stipulate that only people who are fully vaccinated may be allowed into these indoor spaces.  The rule regarding indoor venue entry only for the fully vaccinated takes effect from Friday July 16 and continues until the end of August. Outdoor businesses have the option to decide if they will allow entry only for vaccinated guests. Further details are provided in the Greek Travel Pages news article Greece’s indoor restaurants, venues only for the vaccinated.

A look back at our fabulous Greek Easter feast on Lesvos


Roasting lamb on the spit at Delfinia Hotel on Lesvos

Lamb roasting on the spit at Delfinia Hotel on Lesvos

Staff at Delfinia Hotel in Molyvos roast lamb on the spit — the main course for the hotel’s special Greek Easter holiday meal in 2019


Memorable meal: Today — Sunday, April 19, 2020 — is Easter in Greece, the country’s biggest and most important holiday event of the year. Last year, we got to celebrate Greek Easter for our first time ever while vacationing on Lesvos island. Although it was only 12 months ago, it feels much, much longer, since time seems to have slowed to a crawl during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

We were staying at Delfinia Hotel & Bungalows in Molyvos at the time, and jumped at the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Greek Easter meal that the hotel was hosting on its open-air, seaview breakfast patio. 

It cost us €25 each, an absolute bargain for the excellent quality and splendid variety of delicious food that was served. Amidst all the hustle and bustle of the afternoon feast, we managed to snap a few photos of some of the delightful dishes we enjoyed, and have posted them below.

Next up was a plate of yummy baked pasta, cheese, rice, cheese pie, zucchini fritter and mushrooms (all so delicious, we went back to the buffet for seconds)


Greek Easter kokoretsi dish at Delfinia Hotel on Lesvos

The first main course was a large serving of kokoretsi. If you love organ meats, you would love this spit-roasted traditional dish.

The buffet  included an array of mouth-watering Greek sweets and pastries, which we unfortunately forgot to photograph before devouring them.

The afternoon feast lasted a few hours, following which we took a long walk through Molyvos to get some exercise and work off some of the gazillion calories we had just consumed. [Click here for links to previous blog posts in which we have published photos from our walkabouts in the beautiful town of Molyvos.]  

Greek Easter won’t be the same this year because of social distancing rules and lockdown restrictions in Greece during the Covid-19 pandemic, so there won’t be any group festivities like the one we enjoyed at Delfinia Hotel. With luck, though, things will return to normal for next year and, with even more luck, we might get an opportunity to experience another wonderful Easter meal in Greece.
