Join in on the traditional Greek dancing, music and fun at this year’s annual festival. Experience the culture and tradition as the Greek community shares its heritage with an Atlanta celebration.

Let the continuous live Greek music and traditional bouzouki fill you while you enjoy a spectacular, energetic live traditional Greek dance performances by Atlanta’s very own national-award winning dancers.

In addition to all the delicious food stands, enjoy live cooking demos by local Greek chefs. The chefs will teach you how to make some of the wonderful Greek meals that you have enjoyed throughout the weekend, including the savory Souvlaki and the decadent Baklava.

Barry's Tip: I've attended the Atlanta Greek Festival several years and am always impressed by the large attendance. This is definitely one of the more popular festivals in the Atlanta area. Even if you've been before, there are always more fun things to see and the food is always awesome. The festival crowds can be very large, so your best bet is to park and take a shuttle to the festival. It really is the best way to get to the festival and much easier than you think The buses are very timely and efficient, so wait time is minimum.

While you are strolling around the grounds, make sure to take a walking tour of the Cathedral and view all the interesting architecture and artwork. Also, don't miss the indoor artist's shops . There is a large variety of paintings, jewelry, sculptures, CDs and photos on display for purchase. This is a great place to find gifts for the upcoming holiday season. If you are coming in from out-of-town, there are hotels nearby that offer convenience to the festival. Check our website for Hot Deals to save money on your travel.
