Have a look at this short video on last years Kastania Chestnut Festival.
Given previous issues with YouTube links I have also posted a Vimeo Link.

If links fail just search for "Kastania in the Mani - Chestnut Festival 2018"

A great video but surely it should be Festival 2017. Don't think they've had 2018's festival yet.

The Chestnut Festival is in October and if you remember back to your childhood confers were then. In fact Kastania name in Greek translates to a chestnut tree.

I was only trying to be helpful, the problem here in the Mani is that events are often only published a few days or weeks not 8 months before the date. The only person I can think of who might have any knowledge of the exact date is Maria at Mani Cars, otherwise I have no idea but best of luck trying to find the date.
