Mark your calendar for the 54th festival to be held Oct 11-13
Like a visit to
Greece, the Pensacola Greek Festival offers a rich,
multi-sensory experience of Greek hospitality and culture.
Savory cuisine, soulful music, lively dancing, and educational
tours transform the church grounds at 1720 West Garden Street
into a three day “glendi” (celebration).
Pensacola Greek Festival has become one of the area’s signature
fall festivals. The 3 day cultural event provides an opportunity
for the Pensacola Greeks to share their heritage, culture and
faith with the local community. The event is held on the church
grounds at 1720 West Garden Street under large tents and
includes live bouzouki music, folk dance performances, a variety
of delicious foods, shopping in the Greek Market and tours of
the church. Hours are Friday from 11am- 10pm, Saturday from
11am- 10pm, and Sunday from 12 noon - 6pm. Admission to the
festival is free of charge.
Food, music and dancing are not the only attractions offered at this
festival. Visitors can attend twenty minute church tours to see the
architectural beauty of the inside of an Orthodox Christian church and
learn a little about the Orthodox faith and its culture. Byzantine hymns
will be sung by choir members at the end of each tour.
The Festival is truly a labor of love by our parishioners. Months of
preparation goes into the planning and presentation of this event. Stop
by the Hellenic Center on any weekend in the fall and you will see many
cheerful faces and busy hands as church members prepare food so they can
share their food, their faith and their ethnic pride for one weekend
each year to their Gulf Coast neighbors.
Volunteers are welcome to
assist in pre-festival food preparation. The best way for
non-parishioners to stay up to date on work dates is to follow
us on Facebook where we will post those dates as events.
