Greece - Independence Day

European Days and Weeks
Flag of Greece
Date: Wednesday, 25 March 2020

Venue: Greece

This holiday is Greece's National Day and is always celebrated on 25 March. Greece's Independence Day is actually a holiday that has blended over time with an older festival - the Feast of the Annunciation

 

How is Greek Independence Day Celebrated?


In addition to Greece and Cyprus, Greek Independence Day is also celebrated by many Greeks overseas, and large parades are becoming more common in United States cities where Greeks have made their homes, including Boston and New York City.

Each year, the U.S. President marks the occasion with a proclamation reminding citizens of the contributions of Greece to democracy, and of the ongoing contributions of expatriate Greeks in their new communities throughout the world.
