Assumption Greek Orthodox Church Festival Description
The annual festival is held as a celebration of the parish's August 15 Feast Day. Admission is free and parking is available. The festivities will take place under a big tent.
This year's festival will feature live Music by the band Ta Dilina on Sunday from 2:30pm to 6:30pm. "Our annual festival is an annual Manchester attraction drawing thousands of visitors throughout New England," said Father Athanasios Nenes, parish priest of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church. "The Festival makes for a wonderful weekend, full of great authentic Greek food and fun activities for the entire family. We want our guests to sample Greek hospitality at its best. It is a chance to bring the entire multi-cultural community of Manchester together to celebrate the Greek culture", said Costas Georgopoulos, parish council President.
Visitors will be able to sample a variety of Greek food and pastry - all made by the parish's excellent chefs. Choices for lunch or dinner include barbecued lamb, roast chicken, pastitsio, stuffed peppers, meatballs, grape leaves, loucanico, souvlaki, gyro, and lamb and veggie pockets. Spinach and cheese peta, rice pudding, loukoumathes, and traditional pastries such as baklava, finikia, and kourambiethes will also be available. Ice cream sundaes made with baklava or loukoumathes are some of the other special treats offered.
A variety of vendors will be selling fine jewelry, gifts, crafts, ethnic, and religious items. Other highlights of the festival include a multi-prize raffle, a penny sale, children's activities, and tours of the church.
