48th Annual Greek Festival

It’s been almost five decades since Houston residents first gathered at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral, right in the heart of Montrose, for a celebration of all things Greek. And the party keeps getting bigger and better every year. This year’s 48th Annual Greek Festival features four days of delicious food, lively folk dancing, cathedral tours, shopping, an Athenian playground and socializing. The festival’s known for its authentic Greek food, all of which is prepared by parishioners from recipes handed down over the centuries. The Greek Festival is a party-with-a-cause. Part of the proceeds from the event benefit various local charitable organizations, such as Covenant House and the Star of Hope Mission. Oh, and take the parking shuttle, please. It’s easier.
