Each year new events appear on the Skopelos summer calendar, alongside more traditional festivities and civic and religious events. The island’s first ever International North Aegean Sailing Week, held in August 2011, will be staged again from 4-11 August in 2012. SIFFY, the Skopelos International Film Festival for Youth, returns in 2012, and the annual week-long art festival also returns in August. Dates are being finalised for a music festival in September, while Glossa will be holding its annual Loizia Festival in August, named for the legendary musician Manos Loizos. More local and island-wide events will be announced nearer the time.
