Lykya Festival

does anyone know for sure when the festival will be this year? I got one Google result saying 25-27 June but it is usually at the weekend so not sure this is correct?

I have just posted this question again, with the hope someone may notice it so let's keep our fingers crossed.

I've also sent an email to the tourist board, you never know ....

You may rest assured that some village person living several kilometres from Kaş will know the dates long before the Kaş Municipality publishes them. The Mayor's office never seems to announce to anyone of these dates until at least the night before! :-)

No one still seems to know but doing a bit of research reveals that in 2001 it was held 28 June to July1

Days of the year are the same this year so if I was a betting man.........

I've been told that it will most likely be Fri 22nd to Mon 25th June ( according to the mayor ! )

I hope so as I've already booked accommodation for that week ...

However, as far as I know, it's still not 100% definite that it won't be the subsequent weekend.

I've also been told that Bougainville Travel are one of the sponsors, so it might be worth asking them about it.

Their blog has info on the festival from last year and from 2010, which I found helpful.

I just looked for it again ( googled Kas Lycia Festival. ) Sorry, I don't know how to post a link so that you can click on it, but the address is -

…blogspot.com/2011/06/xiv-international-lyci…

It's a bit confusing because they also have a website Bougainville Travel - the one you want is Bougaineville Adventure and Diving ...

Good luck !

Thanks Njgel, let;s hope that's definite. I've just changed our booking at the Kayahan and one in Patara for the 3rd time ... there;s no way I can do it again !

Have you booked the Kayahan ? It's pretty full - there were only two doubles left for that weekend ...
