Description: Opa! Don't miss the cultural event of the year when Francis Field downtown St. Augustine is transformed into a virtual Greek village. There will be plenty of Greek food and pastries, traditionally-costumed folk dancers, FREE dance lessons, and live music all weekend long! And for your shopping pleasure, a variety of Arts & Crafts vendors will be on site. A portion of the proceeds will be going to a local not-for-profit.

This family-friendly event includes an outdoor marketplace and a Kids Center offering games, rides, and activities. Vendor booths will be set up throughout the Festival offering jewelry, arts and crafts, and more. In addition, a selection of reading material on the Greek Orthodox faith, icons, and other unique items will be available for purchase.

Food and Drink
The Greek Festival offers an amazing array of Greek foods, pastries, and beverages including moussaka, dolmades, souvlaki, spanakopita, and pastitsio. Many of the dishes are provided by parishioners of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church. Families looking for familiar food options for their children will find gyros, hot dogs, and snacks on the kid's menu.

A village Kafenio will be set up where visitors can relax and sip a Greek coffee while trying out some tasty pastries from the bakery. In the Taverna, fine Greek wine, cold beer, and Greek lemonade will be available. Other not-to-be-missed treats are saganaki (flaming cheese) and a variety of desserts that include baklava and other delicious pastries.

Sorry, no pets allowed. Registered service dogs are permitted.
