The largest cypriot fair!

Dates: 29 May – 3 June 2015

Organised by: Larnaka Municipality

KATAKLYSMOS (FLOOD FAIR – DELUGE) “Kataklysmos” is a religious and popular feast celebrated only in Cyprus.

The main festive day is Pentecost Monday but the festivities last for a few days in all seaside towns. Larnaca’s ‘Phinikoudes’, the palm tree promenade, is transformed into an open-air market with stalls, watersports and a ‘chatista’ competition – a folk tradition of improvised rhymes in Cypriot dialect – as well as Greek and Cypriot singers and dance groups.
