Greek Festival in Raleigh

 

Looking for something fun to do this weekend that includes a taste of Greece?  Look no farther!  The 28th annual Greek Festival begins tomorrow at 5 PM. and runs through Sunday. It's held at the Expo Center, NC State Fairgrounds.


This annual fundraiser by the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church now in it's 28th year has become a very popular event here in Raleigh - it attracts thousands of people from all over.  This year part of their proceeds will not only support their church but also will benefit Habitat for Humanity.



You're in for a taste, site, and sound treat.  Authentic foods which include Moussaka, Pastitsio, and the traditional greek chicken I grew up on called Chicken Riganato. 

Of course the favorite spot is over at the desert counter.  Who in their right minds can resist my all time favorite galaktobourdeko?  I think the most popular all time Greek desert is baklava and believe you me these ladies put out a mean baklava!  Check out the full menu

You'll be entertained by authentic greek music and dancing too!  Everyone has such a fun time!

You'll also find a variety of booths surrounding the main hall with exciting items for sale too - I usually start my Christmas shopping at the festival because of all the unique gift ideas.  Or try your luck and purchase a couple raffle tickets.  Not sure if they are having their silent auction - but there's usually some great items to bid on.

Lee and I love visiting with my aunt and uncle - Matena & John Costakis who put in so many volunteer hours with their friends from Holy Trinity.  Seeing the fruits of their labor is heartwarming as so many people attend this event every year.  We've not missed one in the 14 years that we've lived here.  Oh and don't let the long line scare you - Uncle John and others make sure it moves quickly.  They are very organized.

If you would like you can print out this ticket for free admission...


Hope you can make this year!  It's a lot of fun and a fundraiser for a good cause...

The Greek Festival is wonderful in Raleigh!  Also be sure to check out sparkcon downtown Raleigh all weekend!

And the weather should be great too.

Ah, I miss those good ol' ethnic festivals that we used to have back in Texas. Out here in sunny California, where everything is licensed, registered, regulated, or illegal, it seems people are afraid to celebrate their ethnicity and the great diversity that exists only in America!

Russel, I'm sorry to hear that and a little surprised too.  I haven't been to California in quite some time, I really thought diversity was celebrated in CA...if you really want to do ethnic...take a trip to Chicago!

Nick is so right!  Chicago has NO problem celebrating ethnicity!  Such a wonderful city.

Lee & Pamela--Good to see you again.  I plan on going up North in the next month or so...need to visit Greek Town while I'm there.  I'll do a shot of Metaxa to you.  OPA!
