Events: Panegyri Greek Festival

By Michela Tindera · June 20th, 2011 · CityBeat Recommends

Don't miss out on Cincinnati's best celebration of the country that brought us democracy, the Olympics and Skyline Chili. This big fat Greek festival has plenty more to shout "Opa!" about. Check out the traditional Greek dances and bouzouki music, and try out some new moves of your own after 10 p.m. Be sure to munch on a gyro and some baklava, or try out something a bit more exotic like a galaktobouriko or some melomakarouna.

If this all sounds "Greek" to you, enter the "Win a Trip to Greece" raffle so you can explore the Acropolis, Delphi, Santorini and more as you become a real Greek expert. This weekend event is packed with even more activities like cooking demonstrations, shopping and tours of the Holy Trinity - St. Nicholas church. There are also plenty of rides and games for the kids. The festival runs 5-11 p.m. Friday, 3-11 p.m. Saturday and 1-8 p.m. Sunday at the Holy Trinity - St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 7000 Winton Road, Finneytown. Admission is $2, children 12 and under are free and a portion of the ticket price will be donated to Cincinnati FreeStore-FoodBank. Free parking and shuttles available at St. Xavier High School.
