This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Sacramento’s Greek Festival, one of the most prominent heritage festivals in California. Held every Labor Day weekend at Sacramento’s Convention Center, this festival attracts well over 10,000 people from all over Northern California.
To mark this significant milestone, the Festival organizers are adding several key elements to this year’s celebration including: Greek “farm to fork” food court (featuring a full menu of homemade Greek food as well as a large selection of specialty import items); Greek “Plaka” shopping mart featuring clothing, pottery, jewelry, paintings, and more; Greek wine class by Rick Kushman; live Greek music featuring Takis Kokotas, Greek Taverna featuring Greek libation and an array of Mezedes (appetizers); Greek Pastry Shop (Zaharoplastion) featuring delectable desserts and cookies; Greek cooking demos from some of the top Greek chefs and Yia-Yia’s in the region; and Greek dance instruction. http://www.annunciation.ca.goarch.org/?q=content/greek-festival
