The event is fun for the whole family and offers inflatables, live performances and music, craft and vendor tables and tours of the beautiful church.

There???s just something so inviting when you enter the festival every year. It???s hard to resist the hundreds of pastries lining the sidewalk as you enter the main hall for your entr?(C)e. Traditional lamb or chicken gyros on fresh pita with tzatziki sauce, spices, lettuce, tomatoes and onions are perhaps the most commonly ordered meal.

It???s worth trying the mousaka or pastichio for a taste of the Greek life. Mousaka is an eggplant casserole with layers of ground beef, cheese, potatoes and a cream sauce. Pastichio is an interesting classic dish with ground beef, cinnamon, nutmeg and a cream sauce inside of baked macaroni. Whatever dish suits your fancy, don???t miss the roasted Greek potatoes and Greek salad to accompany it!

Still hungry but not ready for dessert? Move on to the spanikopita or tiropita. Both made with cream cheese, egg and filo pastry these delicious side kicks can fill you up quick. Spanikopita has spinach added to it so technically speaking, you???re getting your vegetable servings in! The Dolmathes, or stuffed grape leaves as we typically hear them called, are hand-rolled perfection.

Authentic Greek beer and imported wines wash down the best of any festival lunch and dinner. Ouzo shots are sold at the event if you really want a taste of Greek liquor.
