Greek Food Festival

DUE TO COVID-19

Thank-you for your interest in this year's "Greek Food Festival"

Regarding our festival weekend of June 25-26-27, the tradition continues... with a twist: we have moved everything outdoors!

Earlier this year we were convinced the festival would be another drive-thru event and we started some preliminary planning. Then as the year progressed, we started to consider using the drive-thru model and set-up as a basis for a combined walk-up/drive-thru event with limited entertainment and limited outdoor seating. After assessing the recent announcements by the CDC, State of Pennsylvania, and Allegheny County relaxing pandemic restrictions and providing guidelines allowing a return to some sense of normalcy, and considering the safety of our volunteers and guests, we have decided to host a full outside only, walk-up event with pre-packaged food and pastry items (similar to the 2020 drive-thru), all outside seating, live music and dancing.

Food and pastries are available from 12Noon to 9:00pm each day, while supplies last. Entertainment will continue until later in the evening.

We are accepting only debit/credit cards for payment. Menu items include: Chicken Alexis, Pork Souvlakia and Lamb Shank Dinners and of course Gyro sandwiches; A-la-Carte items include: Spanakopita, Pastitso, Moussaka and Grape Leaves; Pastries include 3 choices of variety packs and bags of koulourakia; Drinks include: Bottled Water, Tea, Diet Tea, Lemonade, Beer and Wine. See the our flier for details.

Greek Food Festival

Each year patrons from our surrounding communities visit our parish in Oakmont/Verona during the last weekend of June for our annual Greek Food Festival. For over 40 years, this parish tradition continues to be one of the most popular Greek Food Festivals in the Pittsburgh area.

Annually, our Greek Food Festival is held on the last full weekend that occurs in June (the last Friday, Saturday and Sunday that all occur in June). There is always plenty of authentic Greek Food and Pastries, along with live music and dance performances late afternoon and evenings. Please see our flyer, listed below for more information.

In Greece, a panayiti (festival) consists of good food, drink, music and dancing. Our Festival is an opportunity for us to share our ethnic heritage with our local community. It is a chance for us to come together and enjoy some good food and traditional live music and ethnic dancing.

Members of our parish begin making preparations for our Festival each year in January. These preparations includes many hours of meetings, coordinating, food preparation and setting up to ensure that each year's festival is a success.

We would like to thank those in the surrounding areas for attending the festival each year — you help to make our festival a success. Our annual festival is an important part of our church — we are proud to be able to provide this event to our community.
