The Greek Festival in Norfolk is the region’s oldest and largest ethnic festival under one of the area’s largest tents.
May 12-15, 2016
The festivities include traditional Greek cuisine, from Souvlaki to Loukoumades - all homemade in the flavorful tradition of Greek cuisine - exciting Greek entertainment, arts and crafts, beautiful jewelry, tours of the Cathedral, and the very popular Drive-Thru.
The Norfolk Greek Festival began as part of the 75th anniversary of the Annunciation Cathedral in 1986. Its origin dates back to the early 1950′s when the Hellenic Woman’s Club (a leading organization of the Annunciation Cathedral) began operating its weekend bazaar. The ladies of that organization spent endless hours selecting the most popular recipes for the delicious Greek foods and pastries that were served at the bazaar.
Bring the whole family as the congregation of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Norfolk share their Greek hospitality with all ages. All proceeds from the festival benefit the Cathedral’s Ministries as well as local community charities.
