The festival takes place at 227 Cumberland Avenue in the Historic Montford District.

Food prices range from $1.00 to $17.00.
Browse through the “agora” (marketplace) while catching a live performance of the talented dancers who carry on the traditions of many years ago. Take a tour of the church that is deep in history in itself.
These are the traditions of Greek life as are the “panigiri” (festivals). Where friends and family come together to enjoy fellowship, food, dancing and all around good time.
