The 59th Original Phoenix Greek Festival | Kids Out and About Phoenix

The 59th Original Phoenix Greek Festival

The longest-running, largest ethnic festival in the Valley endures with Greek food, music, dancing, jewelry, art, grocery items, and activities for children at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Community Center. Join us on October 11-13, 2019, for this family event!
FOOD - Authentic Greek foods include gyros, kalamari, pastitsio (Greek "lasagna"), spanakopita (spinach pie) and lamb roasted on a spit. Also, melt-off-the-bone lamb shanks - and melt-in-your-mouth loukoumades (Greek do-nuts).
This festival offers the most Greek pastries of any other, including baklava, melomakarouna dipped in honey and much more, baked by Greek yiayias (grandmothers). Packaged handmade pastries are available to take with you.
The Village Market features feta cheese, phyllo dough, olives, fresh oregano, and more items imported from Greece.

DRINKS: Popular Greek liquors such as Ouzo and Metaxa brandy will be served alongside imported Greek beer and wine. “Ouzo Flights” offer a variety of Ouzo spirits.

DANCING & MUSIC - Nationally award-winning Greek Folk Dancers perform virtually every hour. Dance lessons offered daily. Everyone can get up to join the line dancing as a live Greek band plays. Opa!

CULTURE - The Hellenic Museum of Phoenix will be open with vintage photographs of pioneer Greek families as featured in the book, Greeks in Phoenix.
Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral tours are conducted throughout each day. The architecture conforms to ancient Byzantine standards while exhibiting unique, Southwest desert aesthetic. The icons and stained glass windows are exquisite.

KID ZONE - Family-friendly, a featured “kid zone” includes bounce houses to jump and play and face painting. Kid Zone food includes hot dogs, chips, candy, snow cones and sodas (for young palates not quite ready for Greek cuisine).
