Every island has its own booth at the central square of Artemonas, where amateur and professional cooks and chefs prepare and present recipes from their islands of origin. Visitors can taste those recipes, visiting the islands' booths.

At a specially formed corner of the square, the "Little Tselementedes" (6 to 12 year old kids), wearing aprons and colorful cook hats, participate in cooking games and contests that are specially created for their age.

The festival opens its doors for the public every day at 18.00, while at the end of each day, at 21.30, there are music and dance events with traditional tunes of Sifnos and the other islands.
