The Feast of the Virgin Mary
The Holy Virgin Church celebrates on August 15th, where a great feast is set up on the island. On August 14th, after the Divine Liturgy, the icon of the Virgin Mary, from the church to the harbor, is carried out. Dancing and singing follows, with local musicians and all chickpeas served by the women of Pserimos. The feast continues until morning and ends when the priest strikes the bell of the church to mark the end of the feast. The church is also celebrated on Nov. 21 in the Presentation of the Virgin Mary.
