The Sights, sounds, aromas and flavors of Greece are coming to life again to the Fort Lauderdale community and visitors. The Fort Lauderdale Greek Festival will take place again this year, February 6-8, on the Church grounds. Continuing a 35 year tradition, the Festival will highlight authentic Greek dishes and pastries, Hellenic youth dance performances, and live Greek Music nightly.
Thousands have indulged in the rich flavors and hearty portions of the Festival’s menu. Passing down the culinary traditions of their parents and grandparents, the organizers of the 2015 Fort Lauderdale Greek Festival offer Greek style chicken, pastitsia, spanakopita, souvlakia, gyro and much more. Complementing the main fare are Greek pastries made by our Church ladies that rival any other Greek pastries found elsewhere.
Families with children of all ages are welcome at the Festival, where they will find a children and young people’s entertainment area filled with fun rides and games. All are invited to enjoy the food, take in the culture, and dance to music.
We hope and pray you will enjoy the fabulous food and the fellowship. We are so proud to share with you our faith, traditions, and culture. Hundreds of volunteers are working to make certain your time with us will be memorable.
We also invite you to take a Church tour to learn more about the timeless faith of Orthodox Christianity.
