The St. Augustine Greek Festival is about so much more than tantalizing your tastebuds. We’re thrilled to return to our traditional annual event to fully celebrate Greek culture and heritage – AND to do so by welcoming you to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of St. Augustine located at 2940 CR 214.
Throughout the Festival, you’ll be surrounded by the sounds of Greek music courtesy of DJ Taki Entertainment. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy performances by regional Greek dance troupes happening at 1:30 and 5:30 on Saturday and 1:30 on Sunday. The Greek dancers will even teach folk dance lessons. (If you’re really striving to be Greek for the weekend, participation is highly encouraged!)
Because Greek culture is deeply rooted in breaking bread with family and friends, Greek cuisine is always a highlight of the annual event. You’ll have the opportunity to watch our sefs (chefs) grill a lamb on the spit. Stop by the outdoor cooking booth for an authentic gyro and fries. Quench your thirst with Ouzo Lemonade or a Greek Frappe. Stock up on your favorite baked goods (and definitely try the baklava sundae!) Then, step inside the church’s community hall to get your fill of all of your favorite dishes. (And be sure to pick up extra to take home!) To view all of the homemade goodness that awaits you, check out this year’s menu.
Plus, whole pans of Greek deliciousness are available via pre-ordering online. (Whole pans will NOT be available for purchase during the festival on Saturday and Sunday.) Pre-ordered pans can be picked up on Friday, October 7th between 4 and 7 p.m., via drive-thru. Click here to order now.
But wait, there’s more! The St. Augustine Greek Festival will feature a quaint arts and crafts show. Walk around and shop the marketplace for authentic Greek wares as well as handcrafted products made by local artist and artisans.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you October 7th through 9th at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of St. Augustine!
This year, the St. Augustine Greek Festival is thrilled to provide a portion of the event proceeds to support the Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County. The local non-profit agency provides transitional and permanent affordable housing to families who have encountered difficult times and are in crisis.
The program is not a hand-out, but a hand-up. They help homeless families who want to help themselves. Emergency Services and Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County has 23 homes for single-parent or two-parent families located on a 5 acre campus in West Augustine.
During the Greek Fest, we will be collecting donations of canned goods and non-perishable foods to help stock the Homeless Coalition's pantry. Please consider donating a couple of the items on their wish list including: pop-top canned items like chicken, Vienna sausages and chili; canned vegetables, canned fruits, tomato sauce, soups, pasta, cereal, boxed milk and bottled water.
