41st Annual Greek Fest to grace Birmingham’s streets
One of the signature, mutual cultural events of the Southeast is the multifaceted Greek Festival, which was begun by and has been hosted by the Greek Orthodox Church since 1972. Birmingham’s own Greek Orthodox Church, The Holy Trinity-Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral, located on 307 19th Street South, will harbor a free admission, three-day festival that will feature authentic Greek cuisine, Mediterranean and Orthodox Christian souvenirs in the Greek Market Place, and Greek dancing. The festival concludes on Saturday, September 28th. The festival will run daily from 10:30 AM until 10 PM.
In addition to Greek cuisine, one may also take a guided tour that explains the Cathedral’s architecture, craftsmanship, and orthodox liturgical function. Also, “Greek Take Out” is made available to those who may not attend the event(s), but desire the taste of the Mediterranean. Vendors and live entertainment will also be exhibited. Free parking will be held at the Liberty National Parking garage one block from the festival. The entrance into the festival is between Richard Arrington Blvd. and 20th Street South.
