The Festival will take place under the "Big Tents", rain or shine.

More than 25,000 people visit the Cranston Greek Festival over the course of this fabulous three day event of Food, Fun, Greek Dancing and Culture.

Greek Food: Guests enjoy a wide variety of Greek food including roast lamb, Greek style chicken, souvlaki, pastitsio, spanakopita ("spinach pie") tiropita ("cheese pie") and Rhode Island's best GYROS.

The pastry booth will feature hand-made Greek pastries, including kourabiedes, loukoumades, baklava, koulourakia, diples, melomakarona, and rice pudding.

We recommend that you enjoy your Greek pastries with authentic Greek coffee, or an iced coffee, "Frappe".

The Annunciation Parish's own Odyssey Dance Troupe will perform at 7 PM on Friday night, and Saturday and Sunday nights at 4 PM and 7 PM. Odyssey Dance Troupe performances feature traditional dances from mainland Greece, and the Greek Islands.

Live Greek music will be performed continuously throughout the 3-Day Cranston Greek Festival.

Other Attractions: Imported items from Greece including jewelry, CDs, and clothing.
This year's Festival features a CASH Raffle; with a $5,000 Grand Prize.
