Rochester Greek Festival 2013
Join us Thursday, May 30th, 31st and June 1, 2 from 11am - 11pm as we continue our tradition of bringing the aromas,
tastes, sounds, and traditions of Greece to Rochester on the grounds of the Greek Orthodox Church, 962 East Avenue, near
the George Eastman House. We will be serving your favorite Greek pita sandwiches like Gyro, Souvlaki and Loukaniko. Try
homemade Spanakopita, Greek Chicken, Pastichio, Moussaka, Stuffed Green Pepper & Tomatoe and Lamb Shank dinners. Enjoy our
latest appetizer additions of Saganaki (flaming cheese) and delicious fried kalamari.
Taste the Greek treats, Loukoumades, available only during Greek Festival or try our famous Baklava. Enjoy your dessert with a custom ordered cup of Greek coffee at the Kafeneo. Visit the Taverna to enjoy a bottle of imported Greek beer, or a glass of Greek wine.
Stroll through the Agora to experience shopping in a Greek marketplace. Our boutiques have many unique treasures; clothing, jewelry, books, icons and specialty foods are a few examples of the selection. Watch local Greek artist, Achilles Mafilios, paint his distinctive landscapes. Kiddie Village, a mini festival of activities for children, returns with a climbing wall. Of course, no Greek Festival is complete without music and dancing. Our cultural dance groups will perform regional Greek dances. Visit our website for dancing schedules.
Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, a Rochester institution, and hub of the Greek American Community, since 1904, houses the city most complete collection of Byzantine style mosaics in the area. The current church was built in 1957. Church tours will explain the interior iconography and the Orthodox faith.
