While it might still be a couple of months away, the Greek Festival’s planning is well underway. The September 20-23 event is a beloved Tucson event, warning Tucsonans that the official end of the hot summer is close. Check out what is in store for this year and make your plans to go early!
The annual festival features its usual variety of mouth-watering traditional Greek eats, including Souvlaki, Saganaki Flambè, Spanakopita, Baklava, and more. The event will also feature live music, dancing, cooking demonstrations, and an array of other activities.
While members of St. Demetrios Church will be preparing food for weeks in anticipation of the festival, the newly expanded Greek Market will be preparing locally made Greek Spice Blends and Ribs, homemade hummis, and fresh Greek salads. Imported products like Greek coffee, “Brikis,” Greek candies, and more will also be available at the market.
