From its humble beginnings in the early 1970s as a simple dinner dance to the current four-day celebration of Greek culture, the Greek Festival has truly become a Central Ohio Labor Day weekend tradition.
It is a true labor of love of the parishioners of the Annunciation Cathedral who sacrifice a great deal of their time and energy to make the festival a memorable experience for the 40,000 or so guests that we anticipate to host.
The festival is a showcase for cuisine, goods, the arts, and performance. Tyropita and baklava carts are rowed alongside vendors with traditional Greek home-wares and jewelry, with the sounds of Hellenic singers bouncing off the brick courtyard of one of the city’s most iconic buildings. Dances go on into the night, with Columbus’ skyline a modern backdrop to this popular celebration of traditional culture.
