Greek Food and Drinks
What would a Greek festival be without an abundance of Greek delicacies? The Fredericksburg Greek Festival will feature a variety of seasoned & marinated meats on the grill, delectable sweet and savory pastries, lovingly prepared with traditional recipes by members of our parish. All that great food will be accompanied by a selection of delicious Greek wines, beer, coffee, soft drinks and of course, Ouzo.
Our Greek Festivals are known for their lively music, dancing and celebration. Our dance troupes of young people entertain the crowds with popular Greek dances. We encourage guests to bring their friends, clap along with the live music and even learn a new dance or two. Many of our friends join us all three days! We welcome everyone in the Fredericksburg community to join our Greek family and learn more about our food, culture and history.
Learn A Greek Dance
Greek dance has a long history and has been enjoyed worldwide for generations. Some dances have been part of military training while others go back to ancient times and periods of celebration. Popular dances include: Kalamatiano, Tsamiko, Zorba, Pentozali, Zeibekiko, and Tik. Some are performed solo, others in large groups. Fast, slow and some in between, all are guaranteed to leave you smiling!
