Festival Detail

Weekend in Greece: Greek Culture and Food FestivalEthnic
Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church invites you to a Weekend in Greece!

This two-day festival celebrates the rich culinary and cultural heritage of Greece. The festival features live, authentic Greek dancing performed by the parishioners and their children dressed in traditional costume.

The chefs of Saint Katherine's prepare traditional Greek favorites using their own special recipes and natural ingredients. Visitors have a unique opportunity to sample common Greek dishes as well as specialty dishes not usually found outside of Greece. Guests are urged not to miss the traditional Greek pastries as well, but don't worry If you run out of room before dessert! All of the food and desserts are available to-go for guests who filled up on traditional delicacies or have to take off early.

In addition, the festival affords guests the opportunity to view beautiful iconography and cultural displays inside the Byzantine-style church on guided tours. The tours allow guests to gain a deeper understanding of the history of Greece and the Greek Orthodox religion. 

Festival has a children/youth component.
