2016 Savannah Greek FestivalThe 66th annual Savannah Greek Festival, scheduled for October 6th, 7th, and 8th, 2016 promises delicious Greek food, dancing, and live music. There will also be a marketplace and Greek church tours.

Savannah Greek Festival is a three-day celebration of Greek food, music, and heritage that annually draws thousands of people. They come for the music, they come for the culture – oh, let’s face it: mostly, they come for the food!

Who can blame them? Spanakopita, dolmades, baklava, pastitsio, lamb, gyros and more! The full menu for Savannah Greek Fest is enough to convince anyone with taste buds to attend – yum!

Beyond the food, live Greek music will be provided all day, every day in the Hellenic Center gymnasium, by The Grecian Echoes. Three dance troupes will also be on hand throughout the festival: Zoe, the adult dance troupe, Goya, the teenage troupe, and Ta Pethai, a children’s dance troupe.

The annual Agora – or Greek Market – held at the entrance of the Hellenic Center, is a big part of Greek Fest, too. Here you can browse through many hard to find Greek items. Greek coffee, imported Greek wine and beer, and many Greek foods that cannot be found in your average supermarket. Things like babaganoush, taramosalata, pepperoncini, olives, olive oil, grape leaves, etc. Not just food, the Greek Market also offers clothing, jewelry, religious items, cookbooks, and more.

Attendees to the Savannah Greek Festival should also take the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour of the recently renovated Eastern Orthodox Christian Church. The decor, architecture, and artifacts seen on the tour are very unique and worth your time.
