With traditional music, sweets, and regional favorites this is a spectacular way to learn and experience a new culture and food. Boxed lunches are available which include a combination of the top sellers and a sweet treat. Also, individual plates are availableand for those of you who wish to eat the delectable regional dishes throughout the year frozen items are available to order also.
The Greek Festival, a springtime tradition for most Richmonders, will return June 2 through the 5. The festival takes place behind the Seventh Street Christian Church on Grove Avenue. Decked out with the great traditions of the Greeks, dancing will be in full swing along with the traditional music. While your there you should check out the beautiful tour of the Sanctuary in a guided tour running every half-hour. An extensive a la carte menu including: gyros, pastries, calamari, grape leaves and many others will be in abundant supply. Not the mention the flow of Greek Wine!
