This year’s Atlanta Greek Festival starts on Thursday, October 4 and goes though Sunday, October 7, 2012. The festival takes place at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral located at 2500 Clairmont Road in Atlanta – between Briarcliff and LaVista Roads. The hours on Thursday are from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Friday and Saturday hours are 11:00 am to 11:00 pm, and Sunday hours are from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
The Atlanta Greek Festival is so fun and festive, it’ll make you feel like you’re actually in Greece! With all of the sounds, sights, smells, and flavors the festival brings every Greek taste and tradition so close to home. Of course, there will be tons of Greek food and there’s also going to be live cooking demonstrations and even a drive-thru if you can’t stay and eat. The dancing and music entertainment will lift your spirits so high that you’ll want to yell OPA!
If learning about history is more your style, there will be tours of the cathedral every hour on the half hour. Guests will be able to view the Atlanta Greek Orthodox Cathedral and will learn about the 2,000 year old religion.
The festival also has a shopping area where there will be all sorts of Greek items for sale. Those include: authentic Greek clothing, jewelry, ceramics, souvenirs, Greek artwork, and other handcrafted items.
