Roanoke’s Greek Festival > A touch of Greece August 9, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Greek Diaspora Festivals.

The big Roanoke Greek Festival is coming up soon, so mark your calendars.

The Greeks certainly have a way with food and they love to introduce new people to their cuisine; heavy on lamb, flaky pastries, shish-kabobs, gyros and such.

This year’s Greek-A-Thon will be held at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, September 15-17. Hours are from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from Noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. It’s been so successful in the past that this year they’ve expanded it by one day so more of you can get a taste of Greece.

There will be lots of authentic foods, live bands, traditional dancers, Greek Orthodox Church tours and imported wines, plus those yummy pastries and baklavas. You may think you’ve tasted real baklava, but until you’ve had the homemade stuff, well it just assaults the tastebuds and nose with honey and spices.

And get this: win a raffle for a trip for two to Athens, Grece. For more information, you may wish to visit their website: www.roanokegreekfestival.com By the way, portions of the proceeds will benefit The Rescue Mission and Center in the Square.
