So much to do, so much to see, so much to eat!

The San Fernando Valley’s annual Greek Festival is taking place on Saturday through Monday, May 27-29, 2017 at Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. The festival evokes the sights, sounds and tastes that define the traditional Greek way of life. Enjoy the hospitality of the Valley’s Greek community, and experience the simple pleasures of life in a Greek village.

Dozens of volunteers enthusiastically staff their booths, creating a convivial, welcoming atmosphere. Festival-goers will not want to miss the delicious Greek food. — Delectable festival favorites like gyros and moussaka. And no Greek village would be complete without homemade pastries from Yia Yia’s traditional recipes: baklava, melomakarona, and kataifi are just a few of the sweet treats to delight you.

Listen to the distinctive sounds of the bouzouki and other exotic instruments played by authentic Greek musicians who perform traditional and popular songs. Delight in the beauty of the elaborate costumes worn by performers as they share their carefully practiced steps and intricate dances with the enthusiastic audience.

Enjoy participating in the same dances you would perform in the traditional villages of Greece. Dance the afternoon away, eat delicious Greek food, shop in the Greek marketplace, relax and enjoy yourself under the trees in the warm embrace of the best Greek culture has to offer.

Learn more about our church by taking a church tour.

So maybe you can’t make it all the way to Greece this year. The Valley Greek Festival is the next best thing to being there!
