Kydianta Association

The Kydianta Association was founded in 1997 and had originally 125 members. Its name derives from the homonymous village, which was deserted during the civil war when its residents moved to nearby Lagada.

The association aims at the revival and the preservation of the Kydianta customs and traditions. The association organizes events such as the “fanoi” (bonfires), the Klidonas fair, the promotion of local cuisine, carnival events, traditional games and the feast of sardine which began in association with the amateur fishermen.

The association also organizes excursions, balls and exhibitions, and maintains a dancing team for adults and small children since its inception.
