Greek Festival Returns for 35th Year

CENTERVILLE – The 35th annual Grecian Festival at the St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Centerville is officially underway with plenty of traditional food, dancing, and vendors for the community to enjoy.

The free celebration of Grecian culture has been a staple of summer on Cape Cod for tourists and locals alike since 1982 and is, as always, free to enter, and free to park, should you be able to locate a spot.

“The Grecian Festival is an outreach to the larger community of Cape Cod,” Father Panagiotis K. Giannakopoulos has been with Saint George’s, and the festival for 26 years, “A chance to expose our culture, our customs, our faith and allow the people to have a good time”

This year’s event features dance performances from traditional Grecian dancing troupes, as well as music from Greek-American dance band “Ta Pethia Orchestra” and Greek performer “WStone” who will each be taking to the stage throughout the festival.

Another popular component of the festival is the variety of culinary offerings which this year includes Lamb Shank, Pork Souvlaki, Greek style Fish-Plaki, Moussaka, and Spankopita all in addition to the crowd-favorite Gyro Stand, and an array of traditional Greek desserts.

As it has for the last 34 years, this year’s Grecian Festival is being held on the grounds of Saint George’s Greek Orthodox Church in Centerville, while there the public is invited to walk through the classically designed Byzantine Church.

The Festival runs until the food runs out Sunday.
