WEB EXTRA: 61st annual Greek Festival happens this Friday & Saturday

Come rain or shine, the 61st annual Greek Festival will kick off Friday at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church on Highland Avenue.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Come rain or shine, the 61st annual Greek Festival will kick off Friday at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church on Highland Avenue.

The festival is a yearly celebration of the Greek culture and traditions filled with singing, dancing, and plenty of food. From Gyros and Spanakopita to an array of Greek pastries, the options are numerous. 

Greek Festival Pastry Chairman Linda Nichols says the kitchen will prepare roughly 26,000 items for sale over the next two days.

“We have Baklava sundaes outside. We have Baklava cheesecake. I don’t know anywhere else in town where you can get those two items. This is a time where can come and get twelve of everything if you want,” says Nichols.

And they’ve made it easy for you as well by offering a drive-thru, which is accessible by turning onto Galloway from Highland. You loop around the back side of the church, where someone will come out to your car and take your order on the spot. 

The Greek Festival runs Friday and Saturday, May 10th and 11th, from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. both days. Admission is $3 for adult and $1 for children (age 6-11, age 5 and under free) or you can donate 3 cans of food that will go to the Mid-South Bank for free admission.
