Learn About All About Greek Culture at the Greek Festival

All the magic of Athens… Just miles from home! The Atlanta Greek Festival brings all the aromas, sounds, tastes and traditions of Greece to your doorstep. Your admission ticket becomes your passport as you enjoy all the Beauty of Santorini and the Fun of Mykonos. The Annunciation Cathedral and the Atlanta Greek Community are proud to host the Atlanta Greek Festival. 

There will be plenty of food! Let the scents of oregano and garlic, and the fragrance of coffee and cinnamon take you back to a simpler yet tastier place. Our cooks know all the secrets to fine Greek cuisine. And with all food items available continuously during the Festival hours you can take this trip as often as you ’d like.

Let the continuous live Greek music and traditional bouzouki fill you while you enjoy our spectacular, energetic live traditional Greek dance performances by Atlanta’s very own national-award winning dancers. The Greeks call it Kefi – when the music is playing and the joys of life consume you making you want to jump, dance and yell OPA! The Atlanta Greek Festival is all about Kefi!

Children of all ages will enjoy the arts & crafts, face painting and other activities in this area. The Annunciation Day School will be overseeing this area while also promoting the wonderful learning environment of the school.

After eating and entertainment, of course, it’s time to shop. The various gift shops are a shopper’s paradise, filled with a variety of Greek items – authentic Greek sailor hats, clothing, ceramics, copper, books, icons, jewelry, gold, Olympic souvenirs, and handcrafted items.

It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know.
