Houston Greek Fest 2016

Arts and Entertainment

May 12, 2016

From: Houston Greek Fest

For over 20 years, Houston Greek Fest has built a solid reputation as the premier festival event in the West Houston area sharing Hellenic culture with over 15,000 attendees. Guests of all ages are treated to our family friendly environment, featuring the finest in Greek foods, pastries, church tours, shopping, dancing and children's activities. This year, we are honored to partner with Ronald McDonald House Houston to assist with their mission of helping families of seriously ill children stay close together during these times.

At this event visitors can enjoy tours of the Church, dance performances, delicious Greek cuisine and beverages, unique Greek art, jewelry and imported gifts. Best of all, you get to hang out with some really great people! Last year we had over 10,000 visitors and we plan to topm: that number this year! Don't miss your chance to support a Parish that has been a strong presence in Texas for 20 years and to give your business some recognition in the local community.
