Greek community gathers in Sydney to celebrate Tsiknopempti

Sydney’s Greek community gathered at the Panarcadian Club in Canterbury on Thursday to celebrate Tsiknopempti.

Tsiknopempti, or ‘Smoky Thursday,’ is part of the traditional celebrations of Apokries season and centres on the consumption of large amounts of grilled and roasted meats.

The Sydney event was organised by the Panachaian Philanthropic Association (PPA) and saw over 100 people enjoy meat off the grill and have a dance or two.

Attendees also enjoyed live music by Thanasis Pylarinos and Kosta Zafeiropoulos on the clarinet.

“Thank you to everyone for attending. You all made Tsiknopempti a fabulous night,” President of the (PPA) wrote on Facebook about the event.
