GREENSBORO, NC -- Greece is known for so many things: The Olympic Games, democracy, famous philosophers, delicious food and entertaining dances. And for one weekend out of the year the Dormition of the Theotokos Greek Orthodox Church brings those traditions to Greensboro.
The Greensboro Greek Festival is in town Friday, September 29th from 4:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., Saturday, September 30th from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. and Sunday, October 1st from noon until 6:00 p.m. Admission is $1 a person or free with a non-perishable food item for the Second Harvest Food Bank. Children under 12 are free when they come with a parent or guardian.
The festival is happening at 800-802 Westridge Road in Greensboro at the Dormition of the Theotokos Greek Orthodox Church. That's at the corner of West Friendly Avenue.
Greek food, pastries, live music and dancing are on tap as well as plenty of shopping and cultural exhibits. There's a play area for the kids with games and face painting. New this year, you have a chance to mingle a Spartain warrior in full armor and the Evzones will reenact the ceremonial Athenian changing of the guard on Saturday.
