Description: Delicious traditional Greek cuisine, live music, folk dancing, shopping, children's activities and more. Experience Greek "filoxenia" - the Greek word for showing hospitality to others - as the church community goes all out to show you a good time.

Delectable Grecian favorites such as roast lamb, souvlaki (shishkabob), dolmades (grape leaves stuffed with meat and rice), pastitsio (the Greek version of lasagna), moussaka (eggplant casserole), gyros, saganaki (the famous flaming cheese), Greek fries and calamari, and to quench your thirst, there will be beer, both domestic (Budweiser) and imported (Mythos), as well as wine, ouzo, Metaxa and soft drinks.

Enjoy a cup of Greek or American coffee, and where to even begin when describing our delicious homemade desserts? From baklava and loukoumathes to tsoureki and koulouria, we are sure to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth!

Shop at the Agora (marketplace) where you will find beautiful and unique gift items and jewelry imported from Greece, including ceramics, pottery, worry beads, "evil eye" jewelry, dresses, embroidered blouses, T-shirts, CDs, DVDs, hats and more. There will also be Greek desserts and other Greek food products for sale.

Dance to lively bouzouki and other traditional Greek music by Grecian Express. Watch the children, dressed in authentic Greek costumes, as they enthusiastically dance to traditional Hellenic folk dances. Get ready for the Super Bowl by prepping at our Loukoumathes Eating Contest and see how many of these delectable desserts you can stuff your face with in the shortest amount of time. For the children, there will be face painting and inflabatable toys where they can jump, bounce and slide to their hearts' content.

The Church Narthex, Sanctuary and Bookstore will be open during festival hours and there will be presentations at various times (schedules will be posted) in the Church Sanctuary about Orthodox Christianity, and future building plans for St. Haralambos Church, as well as movies will be played at various times on Orthodox Saints and Holy Sites.
