So far this year, Roanokers have enjoyed several annual food festivals, eating everything from Lebanese cuisine to strawberries and chili.
Now it’s time for another favorite, the Roanoke Greek Festival at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Northeast Roanoke.
This year marks the ninth year of the festival, which serves as a fundraiser for the church, with food, beverages, music and dancing.
The food is usually the biggest draw. Menu items include pastichio and moussaka, both layered casserole-style dishes; pork and chicken souvlaki, Greek-style green beans, Greek rice pilaf, stuffed grape leaves, Greek salad and, for the sweet tooth, baklava and other desserts.
Don’t want to bother with parking and foot traffic? The festival has a drive-through window, but they advise calling to order 30 minutes in advance.
If you live in an apartment in Roanoke, VA there are only days left until the festival on September 19, 20 and 21. Be Greek for a day!
Free Admission! Come join the thousands of participants who visit this joyous cultural festival each fall. Each year, new high attendance records are attributed not only to the return of many past participants, but to the many newcomers who come to taste and share in the Greek experience.
Spread the word and bring a friend. Enjoy Greek food, music, dance and joy.
