Memphis Greek Festival celebrates 61 years

Thousands are expected to visit Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church this weekend for Memphis Greek Fest.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) — Thousands are expected to visit Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church this weekend for Memphis Greek Fest.

Organizers of the festival say it all starts with the love and faith they want to share with the community.

Visitors to the Greek Orthodox church are invited into the more than 50-year-old sanctuary to witness its beauty before diving into the food that so many are braving the elements to enjoy.

5,000 gyros and more than 5,000 baklavas are served each year.

“Our kids are going to be dancing at noon and 6pm tomorrow, and we’d love for you to come on the dance floor and work off some of that food you’re going to be eating, but it is so much fun. We’re all about food and family and fun,” said Kathy Zambelis, the event’s spokeswoman. 

Greek Fest starts at 11:00 a.m. Saturday. Three canned goods gets you into the festival for free.
