You don’t have to pronounce the food names – just eat and enjoy at our Greek Festival that has been held for over 55 years. The four-day celebration offers people of all nationalities an opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Greece. Attractions include authentic Greek music performed by Authentic Greek Bands and our Renowned Hellenic Dancers in traditional folk costumes.
Greek cuisine is one of the most embraced and healthiest of ethnic foods in the USA. Enjoy full meals served in our air-conditioned dining hall or under the stars. The outstanding classic Greek meals made by the parishioners include lamb shank, fish, Pastitsio, Moussaka, Spanakopita, Tiropita, rice pilaf, chicken, Greek salads and rice pudding. There are two pastry booths selling Baklava, Galatobouriko and more! Learn to make these popular desserts during our FREE COOKING CLASSES. Two Tavernas offer Greek wines and specialties including Gyros (pronounced “yeeros“), Souvlaki, amazing Calamari, Saganaki & even Greek coffee. The popular Kids Corner offers an assortment of games and treats.
Shop for imported Greek jewelry, artwork and ceramics. Also, religious items, videos, books and CDs and an enormous Flea Market in the lower level of the Church.
