According to this site, Lent begins for the Orthodox Church on March 6th 2006, but I think there are some festivities in the weeks before.

Although I can't find a link to the scheduled events, several websites indicate that there will be carnival events on select dates in Athens. The site I've found reference that you should contact the Athens tourist office for more information.

Here are a couple of websites with some (limited) information about the Carnival.
