This year, the Greek Festival is enjoying its stature as one of America’s best Greek Festivals in the nation! (www.greekfestival.org) The Greek Festival began in 1966 as a church fundraiser for the local Greek Orthodox Church in Houston, Texas and still continues today. (www.agoc.org) This year, 40,000 people will visit the festival. Festival goers describe it as a “very pure” festival because everything about the festival is in-house. The food is all authentic, hand-made food based on recipes that the grandmas’ grandmas have passed down through the years.
Highlights include the homemade Greek food, children’s dancing, a film all about Greece, and Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral tours. The festival provides free parking at Lamar High School. Opa!
