Over the years, this cultural event has made a reputation for itself, becoming Parramatta and Western Sydney's premier Greek event. The Greeks certainly know how to have a good time when it comes to music and food, so it's going to be a huge day of Greek style festivities!
There will be Greek entertainment throughout the day with live performances, Greek music, Greek market stalls, competitions, activities for children and lots more. You can expect a great festival program and the highlights include:
Delicious, authentic Greek food
Live Greek music & entertainment
60 market stalls
Carnival rides for all ages
The Festival will end with a spectacular fireworks show at 6.15pm.
Indulge in everything that makes Greek food so great
Delectable food was definitely a prominent part of this Greek Festival. I got lured into an agora style marketplace upon entering the festival grounds. There were numerous Greek food stalls all offering delicious traditional delicacies from all areas of Greece.
These authentic Greek food stalls really tempted our tastebuds!
Most notably were the freshly-made loukoumades (aka Greek donuts) or as my friends affectionately called them the "Greek honey puffs". The queue was long for these delicious dessert but it was totally worth the effort. It was fun to watch the Greek ladies and men in aprons busily deep-frying the loukoumades in large batches.
Oh the FOOD! Tempting your taste-buds.
There were 10 golden deep fried loukoumades in one serving and it only cost $5! We were totally pleased with it.
The grilled souvlaki stand was another popular food stand. The souvlaki wrap was served on a soft pita bread roll with fresh lettuce and zingy Greek Tzatziki sauce. It was reasonably priced so my friends got a few.
A good feed - Chicken souvlaki warp! So much better than the boring sausage sizzle.
It was a great cultural experience to immerse in the good food, entertainment and warm hospitality of the Greek-Australian community. We were happy to participate in this incredible festival that embraced multiculturalism in Australia.
