The Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Asheville will host the 33rd annual Greek Festival on September 27, 28 & 29 at 227 Cumberland Avenue in the Historic Montford District.
Come out and share in the festivities! Sample traditional foods like Lamb Shank, Pastichio, Spanakopita, Gyros, and Souvlaki. All these go well with a Greek Mythos beer or with Greek wine. And don’t forget to top off your meal with delectable pastries like Baklava, Kourambiethes, Galatoboureko, and Loukoumathes. You can enjoy all these delicacies while tapping your feet to the sounds of our traditional music. Food prices range from $2 to $17. Take out will be available!
Become “Greek for a day” browsing through the many vendors booths for something special to take home. Stroll through the “agora” marketplace as if you were in a village. Sip café and eat loukoumades. Enjoy a live performance of talented dancers who carry on the traditions of past generations. The “panigiri” (festival) is where friends and family come together to enjoy fellowship, food, dancing, and an all-around good time. These traditions are part of Greek culture that will be shared with you.
Take a tour of the church, open to all, which is deep in history and traditions. Hours for the festival are Friday & Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
