• September 15 – Ifestia Festival 2018
Hands down, this is Santorini’s most impressive event! Held for 26 years in a row, the festival, which includes a spectacular fireworks display and a series of artistic events, is basically a tribute to the eruption of Santorini's volcano, which defined the island’s fate since 1600 BC. Special effects and fireworks used to reenact the lava flow and the explosions of the volcano will leave you speechless!
• September 30 – Charity Ride for Cancer
Distinguished Gentleman's Ride Santorini is a global one-day motorcycle event aiming at raising awareness and money for prostate cancer and men’s health. The event started in 2010 in Australia and it takes place simultaneously in over 600 cities and 90 countries. The main characteristic of this charity ride is the participation of the local community, the residents of Santorini, who ride their vintage or custom motorcycles around the island!
