Events and Festivals in Crete

In Crete, the residents celebrate all year round. The most well-known celebrations though are the fairs in honour of the patron saint of each village. To these a number of anniversaries of national importance can be added, such as the Battle of Crete every May, and the national celebrations on October 28th and March 25th. Exhibitions of products, street markets etc. are organised.
