CORFU. For the second year in a row - Sunday 17 December to Saturday 30 December.

(North Corfu Municipality) For the second year in a row, the Christmas village is being prepared in North Corfu Town Hall square in Acharavi. It will host the enthusiasm and spirit of the municipality cultural societies, Philharmonic bands, choirs, and dance groups, making the festive season even more magical and fairy-tale-like.

Every day there will be different events such as animations, stilt-walking, face painting, live music, and songs from musical ensembles in the area.

The beginning was in 2022 when, for the first time, the "village" filled with children's voices, laughter, smiles, games, and wishes, making Christmas even warmer and brighter! The Christmas Village is a colourful celebration, a small village that opens its arms wide to welcome all ages and offer moments of joy. Artistic groups, associations, clubs, etc., have been invited, and anyone who wishes to participate by offering entertainment activities, creative engagement, etc., is joyfully welcomed, following the philosophy of Christmas messages: love, harmony, culture, acceptance, and peace!

The official guest In the Christmas village this year again will be Santa Claus!

Young friends, as well as grown-ups, will have the opportunity to visit Santa Claus' house, talk to him, take photos together, write their letters, and drop them into the large mailbox destined for the North Pole. Additionally, there will be a festive train of joy, continuously riding through Acharavi, spreading the "spirit of Christmas."

The Municipality expresses its gratitude to everyone supporting this celebration, including the cultural societies, residents and others. Our thanks also go to our sponsors and all the volunteers who will support this effort throughout the festive season.

 

There is something for people of all ages in the Christmas village, with adults having the opportunity to "become children" for a while! In the square you will find... "The Fairy Tale of Colourful Christmas," Fun and culture! "Workshop of Emotions" with letters to Santa Claus, "Colourful Costumes" with imaginative costumes and creations, sweets - treats - drinks. Additionally, games, face painting, and crafts await our little friends to have a lively time. Musical evenings will connect us to art and tradition. An outdoor Christmas market will also operate, filled with inspiring gift ideas for our loved ones at this time.

The "Colourful Christmas Village" in the Town Hall Square in Acharavi, North Corfu, will make the "heart" of our Municipality beat magically at the biggest celebration of the year, from Sunday, December 17, 2023, to December 30, 2023.
