"Feggari Kalokerino" (Greek script: "Φεγγάρι καλοκαιρινό", English translation: "Summer Moon") was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1981, performed in Greek by Yiannis Dimitras.

The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following Belgium's Emly Starr with "Samson" and preceding Cyprus' Island with "Monika"). At the close of voting, the song had received 55 points, placing 8th in a field of 20.

The song is a ballad, with Dimitras telling the summer moon about how it makes him feel. He pledges, for example, to build a church "for the crazy children of love". He was accompanied on the piano by actress and pianist Sofia Houndra, who was not credited on-screen.

Greece elected not to enter the 1982 Contest. Thus, the song was succeeded as Greek representative at the 1983 Contest by Kristi Stassinopoulou with Mou Les.
