The 56th annual Sacramento Greek Festival is a family-friendly celebration of authentic Greek dishes, honey-drizzled pastries, specialty wine and beer, live music and dancing all weekend!
The Greek Festival recently moved back to the block on Alhambra in East Sacramento where it all started more than fifty years ago. In the spirit of the Greek tradition, the church invites the community “into our home” at our new indoor/outdoor venue where we’ll host an authentic “panigiri” — a party under the stars that dates back centuries, featuring live music, dancing and delicious food.
All proceeds support parish outreach, youth programs and local charities.
