Within the first ten days of August, the festival of sardines was organized.
It was a relatively new festival that was organized only for the last decade, but with increased success and attracting more people every year.
To celebrate Sardines looks pretty far-fetched but if we take into consideration that Benitses once was a fishing village, the largest in Corfu and that the people in the past lived by fishing they had every right to create a celebration for the most popular fish, the sardine.
On the day of the feast large quantities of sardines cooked and offered for free to all visitors, it was of course not possible to miss the various traditional bands and partying till late.
Update October 11, 2019, : In recent years and for various reasons the custom has weakened and the festival is not happening.
