This is not your usual summer festival of hot dogs and popcorn! Only the finest ingredients are used to prepare our gourmet Greek delicacies--and serving sizes are of Epic proportions!

We haven't been sitting on our Greek laurels' Pop a few Spanakopita (spinach cheese puffs) and Dolmades (beef & rice stuffed grape leaves) in your mouth and you'll know why Philhellenes (friends of the Greeks) keep coming back year after year. After licking sticky, honey fingertips from Baklava (honey drenched nut & filo layers), and Galadoboutiko (honey-soaked custard-filled filo) you'll enjoy hours of toe tapping with Live Greek music and dancing! Get out there and learn some of the latest Greek dance with the dance troupe. The Greek band, A Night in Athens, will perform all weekend. International Bouzouki star George Antonopoulos joins vocalist Joanna Katsonis and band, as they perform both popular and folk music. Our local dance troupes Ikouyennia (Family) dancers and the Delta Dynamis dancers will wow you with their dances!
