Fall Greek Festivals

The eating and dancing continues through summer into fall. The following list includes Greek festivals organized by churches around the US. I’ve only attended a few in the San Francisco Bay Area but imagine those in other parts of the country are similar and worth exploring. In many of the communities listed it’s a rare opportunity to get a taste of Greek food, music, and culture. And there are usually activities of interest to people of all ages.
