Giortes Rokkas is the celebration that brings together society and culture, in the villages of Rokka and Kera, located in the greater region of Chania.

It’s a celebration of the arts organized by the locals themselves, that attracts visitors from all around the world.

Giortes Rokkas first took place in the summer of 2013 and have been taking place every year since at the same meeting point, the archaeological site of Rokka Kissamos, on the night of the full moon of August.

This year, on the ten year anniversary of the Giortes Rokkas festival, our goal is to celebrate our journey and honor those who have been part of it. To capture the magic that happened every summer in the villages, to look back and remember what united us every summer in Kissamos, to create pieces that will contain our collective memory so that it will never be forgotten.

More than ever, we are interested in preserving the character from which the Giortes Rokkas festival began.
