The annual gathering of the Panepirotic Association of Greece was a great opportunity for Epirotes to showcase their dance, songs, and costumes to a huge audience at the Peace and Friendship Arena.

The event was a feast of color and sound with the participation of more than 3,000 dancers and musicians, including clarinetists, laouto players, defi players, and violinists.
