Summer festival > Greek Day in Canada June 21, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Greek Diaspora Festivals.

Savour some souvlaki at this weekend’s Greek Day street party, which is a great chance to try such Hellenic treats as mastic, spanakopita, and honey-drenched loukoumades.

Greek Day > A month of Hellenic celebrations culminates in a street party this Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. Greek associations hawk gyros, spanakopita, Greek salad, chicken and pork souvlaki, and more. Restaurateurs and grandmothers share recipes from the cooking stage, which this year offers tented, shaded seating.

Why not try mastic, a sappy resin that was the chewing gum of the ancient Greeks; free samples at the Hellenic Experience tent. Save room for loukoumades, deep-fried pastry balls drenched in a honey syrup and dusted with cinnamon and sesame seeds.
When: June 24
Where: West Broadway between MacDonald and Blenheim streets
