Every year, at the beginning of September, Artemonas hosts the "Nikolaos Tselementes" Cycladic Gastronomy Festival. It is a three-day festival, which has become an institution and is internationally recognized.

Representatives from the Cyclades islands along with representatives from one honored guest Aegean island meet in Sifnos to present their unique gastronomic and cultural traditions.

Every island has its own booth at the central square of Artemonas, where 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.

The entrance to the festival is free and the food that is offered is for free too.
