This popular festival is organized to promote filoxenia or “friendliness to strangers,” a quality said to be a gracious trait of the Greek culture. Each year, the festival attacks around 20,000 visitors, plying them with food, music, dancing, church tours and more. They plan to top that number this year. With the baklava, spanakopita, stuffed grape leaves and other Greek fare, who can stay away?
It is a true labor of love by the parishioners and friends of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, who sacrifice a great deal of their time and energy each year to make the October festival a memorable experience.
Join the 20,000 plus guests who attend each year to experience the inherent, warm hospitality that Greeks call filoxenia or “friendliness to strangers” which is the nature of all Greeks. Be inspired by taking a tour of the beautiful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy music, dancing, food, and good company, also known as parea.
Admission is free all weekend.
