Weekend To-Do: The Greek Food Festival

Posted By on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 9:29 AM

11 a.m., Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, Free.

It's the 25th anniversary of arguably the best food festival around, and while I suspect I speak for a lot of folks when I say that I'd be content with heaping gyros and falafel, grilled chicken kebabs and four or five pieces of baklava, the festival long ago expanded beyond food. Through Sunday, there's a full entertainment schedule, with everyone from the Greek American Folk Dance Society to the Dancers of India to the UALR Guitar Ensemble taking the stage. Daily, too, there's a kids area, with climbing walls and bounce rooms and small rides and games. Of course, as usual, there'll be tours of Annunciation Church and an indoor Old World Market, where you can by specialty foods, Russian collectibles and other handmade and collectible goods. For those on the go, there's a drive-through offering a limited menu open throughout the festival and an order form, online at greekfoodfest.com, for ordering in advance.
