Syros, with its mixed religious society, has a rich festive circle, where many local festivals take place. A separate experience is the carnival of Ano Syros on the Sunday of Tyrinis, where the festive atmosphere that is created in the narrow streets is explosive! Many cultural events take place during summer: "Ermoupoleia" in Ermoupoli (since 1994) which includes the Guitar Festival (since 1994), the Aegean festival (since 2005) and the newly established "Musical May". "Apanosyria" in Ano Syros, the "Musical routes in the path of Markos" in Kini and in Galissas  and "Galissia" in Galissas are also including a considerable variety of events.

In Posidonia, in July everybody waits for the gathering of the trawl, which is followed by a traditional feast on the beach of Agkathopon. In Vari on the 15th of August the "Avgoustiatikes Meres" take place, with the rejuvenation of old customs and professions, constructions in the sand and "Venetian" evenings. In the beach of Finikas, on the third Friday of August a "Kakabia" (fish soup) is organised with dances and songs. In the region "Kampi" of Vari, the traditional "Trygopati" (crushing of grapes) is organised in September.

From spring up to autumn.
