7th Annual Roanoke Greek Festival September 14, 15 & 16 2012

Submitted by Pete Simopolus, Festival Chair

The 7th Annual Roanoke Greek Festival will be held on September 14th, 15th and 16th.  The event is hosted by the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church and will take place on the church grounds located at 30 Huntington Boulevard rain or shine.  Although taking place in Roanoke, the festival boasts a regional draw with supporters from Blacksburg, Lynchburg, Harrisonburg and other nearby communities.

 Several months ago, we had the honor of being voted Southwestern Virginia's Best Food Festival by Virginia Living Magazine.  Our festival is a cultural event that shares our well-known cuisine such as souvlaki, gyro, pastichio, moussaka, dolmades, spanakopita, tiropita, baklava and other delicious pastries.  We also feature our Greek drinks including wine, beer and coffee.
