Opa! Greek Festival This Weekend!

I go pretty crazy for a Greek festival. I drive by St. Sophia’s on a daily basis, and I have a giddy little heart attack when they hang the sign announcing the dates for their biannual food and fun fest. It’s not within walking distance of my house this weekend, but the Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church is having their 50th Anniversary Greek Festival September 17th-19th.

I’ll be the first to admit that I go for the food (the souvlaki! the spanakopita!) but I stay for the fun. In addition to the traditional grub, there will be Greek coffee, beer, wine, live music, and a Greek bazaar full of all the Mediterranean trinkets your heart desires.

The festival runs from 12pm-9:30pm on Friday and Saturday, and 12pm-8pm on Sunday. More information can be found here.
