49th Annual Original Greek Festival

Arts and Entertainment

September 30, 2015

From: Original Greek Festival

Schedule of Events:

October 1, 2015

6:00 pm, 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm: Dance Program

The films "Never on Sunday" and "Zorba the Greek" introduced the Greek dance to moviegoers of the silver screen, but most visitors to the Greek Festival may not realize that the dance today has retained much of its identity from ancient times, as has the Greek language. It is a living vital force in the Greek way of life, and its spirit brings people together with a true feeling of camaraderie. It's a fundamental aspect of the Greek religious festivities, national holidays, and family celebrations such as weddings and baptisms events that center around the church life of Orthodox parishioners.

6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 pm: Cathedral Tours

Tours consist of a video presentation on the history of Orthodox Christianity and our Annunciation parish, followed by a question and answer period with the Cathedral clergy. Learn the symbolism of the beautiful Byzantine-style Cathedral.

7:00 pm to 9:30 pm: Live Greek music provided by "The Golden Greek," Mr. Alex Kalos. Come practice or learn Greek dancing!
