No Greek meal is complete without this cheese. Whether it's a pita, the famous Greek salad, or even ice cream, feta is added to everything. The city of Elassona produces around 30% of all the feta in Greece, which is 30,000 tons per year.

If you are a feta cheese fan, this festival gives plenty of opportunities to try different types as many samples are given out. Thousands of locals come here every two years in September for this very local experience. It's a perfect opportunity for those travellers who are tired of the touristic sights and want to feel the spirit of the country.
