Pefkofyto flourished in recent history, in the early 20th century until the '60s. In recent years the population has declined significantly since most young people moved in urban areas in search of a better life. Many people who live in neighbouring cities and towns like (Mouzaki, Trikala, Karditsa, Larisa, etc.) visit the village at Christmas celebrations, Easter and especially during the summer to regenerate. The village celebrates on June 29 of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul with events in the village square.
