Original Greek Festival

Dance the Tsamiko after you eat your souvlaki

If the recent temporary closing of Mykonos Island has you in a panic, relax. There’s still plenty of Greek food in the city, and the best of the best — souvlaki, spanakopita, those sweet, sweet loukoumades and other hard-to-pronounce foods — will be available at this weekend’s Original Greek Festival. Now in its 41st year, the festival celebrates the culture, religion and music of the country, beyond just what you’ve seen in Anthony Quinn movies. Entertainment will include live music, children’s shows and folk dancing. Tours of the cathedral and programs about the history of the Greek Orthodox religion are also available. And after one too many glasses of wine, you just might need to wobble in there and pray for divine intervention with your hangover.
