Join in the celebration of the Annual Greek Festival in Columbus, Ohio. This is a true opportunity to discover the traditions and heritage of Greece.
You’ll experience an inspirational tour of the The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral with beautiful mosaic and pristine marble.
Featuring authentic food that will make your mouth water. Dine indoors on gourmet foods such as pastitio, spanakopita and many more. Or enjoy the outdoor lamb roast dinner under the tents.
Additionally, enjoy the outdoor fast food tent for souvlaki, (my favorite!) gyro or Greek pizza plus much more. Don’t miss the scrumptious pastries like the Baklava at Maria’s. Enjoy coffee and Loukoumades at Kafenion’s coffee shop!
Take a stroll and enjoy the many fascinating shops. Beautiful artwork by Evangelia Philippidis, the gift boutique “Agora,” and the delicious Greek Deli featuring awesome foods, wine and much more. You’ll also find a great Christian bookstore, jewelry, imported linens and leather and much more.
You won’t want to miss the dancer’s performance near the music tent. Enjoy the artistry of Junior, Zoee and Evzone Festival Folk Dancers as they perform in traditional dress.
You’ll also get the chance to try some dancing yourself when the performers are on break! The dancers will also share some lessons with you! So put your dancing shoes on!
