Anyone know of any good Greek food festivals in the Philadelphia area in the coming months?

    Opa at the Greek Orthodox Church on Old York Road in Elkins Park. Here's a link to their calendar. Looks like it runs from May 24-27. Food, games, rides, All the good stuff.

      Depends on your definition of 'Philly area' but there's one in Wilmington that I hit every year at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in June...

        This isn't very informative, but St. George's on 8th St. does a small but good festival twice a year and I think the time is coming soon. Their website is down though, maybe someone has more info on that one.

          Is St. George's festival twice a year really? The festival last fall was great...especially the souvlaki and the baklava!

          Hey, I know this post is old, but I thought I'd resurrect it to let everyone know:

          St. Sophia in Audubon, PA is having it's Fall Greek festival this weekend. I don't have the website, but it is located near the Walmart on Trooper Road.
          Stop by Zwahlen's for some dessert afterwards - the best ice cream in all of PA, yum.
