Atlanta Greek Festival Returns

The yearly food and cultural event returns to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation this weekend.

If you're in the mood for good food and fun, head over to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation on Friday for one of our community's largest yearly events.

The Atlanta Greek Festival returned Thursday evening and will run through Sunday.

From a story about this year's event in Neighbor Newspapers:

With such a longstanding tradition in the community, there are bound to be many changes throughout the years. This year there will be one notable change – the integration of iPads for cashiering. Festival Chairman Sandy Papadopoulos said having the new technology is a big step for the festival.

“We traditionally have a lot of lines everywhere and this is something we’re trying integrate – a one-stop shop scenario where you would just buy your food and drinks and you wouldn’t have to buy tickets, just pay by credit card or cash and go and enjoy the festival,” he said.

The Greek Festival is a great way to spend an afternoon and evening. A bit of Greek cuisine and culture in the middle of Atlanta. The tours of the church are fascinating. The music can really transport you to Greece if you close your eyes (and have been to Greece). And the fact that it helps the Church witth their budget makes it even better in these tough times.
