Tucked away in a western corner of Morris County, one might find it hard to believe just how many people will find out about and then travel - sometimes a significant distance - to enjoy and share the BIG GREEK FESTIVAL experience.
Each year thousands converge to mark the celebration of all things characteristic of a Greek community gathering.
Attending for the first time, visitors are often surprised by the mix of sights, sounds and delicious scents that greet them before they've even crossed the threshold. Some of the tantalizing smells can be attributed to an outdoor seating area in the under-the-tent taverna with adjacent hot grills laden with sizzling, seasoned souvlaki. The menu selections are the perfect accompaniment to any number of bar selections, especially with last year's introduction of the exclusive Big Greek Festival drink, the "Blue Greek," using Ouzo as its base.
On each of three days, there is a variety of activities suitable for all ages to entertain, and a unique Kiddie Corner with rides and activities.
