Introduction. The lighting of the fanoi (great bonfires) is a carnival celebration observed in the region of Kozani in Greece. Aim of Study. The purpose of this work is to investigate changes in the structure, execution, content, place and time of the fanoi celebration after the takeover of its organization by a local cultural association. Material and Methods. The data was collected using the ethnographic method and participative observation. For data analysis a comparative study of the organization, structure and content of the celebration was carried out before and after 1997 with the use of anthropological method. Results and Conclusions. The study shows that the time, place and duration of the celebration have changed. Singing and dancing occupy today a prominent position during the lighting of the fanoi. Although some young people attempted to introduce modernist elements to the custom, these were rejected by both young and elderly members of the community.
