Greek Festivals in Central NJ

A couple of years ago I went to a Greek festival near Westfield. It was great fun and the food was outstanding.

I'd be interested in knowing about other Greek festivals scheduled in the next few months. Here's one that will be held in mid-June near Flemington (actually about half way between Flemington and Frenchtown):

  1. I've seen some signs that went up last week for a Greek festival in the East Windsor area (I believe -- my memory of the signs is hazy at the moment). The festival is this month.

    I recognize that the vague details of this post were not especially helpful, but maybe someone else has seen the signs on the side of the road like I've seen them.

    1. I believe there is one coming up in a few weeks in Piscataway (just outside of New Brunswick and Highland Park.

        Pretty sure that I saw signs for the Greek Festival this weekend in Piscataway

      2. I should have tried this before but Google provided the answer to my own post!

        For those who are interested, just search "Greek festival" along with 'Jersey' and '2009', and several festivals will pop up. There are a couple this weekend.

        1. There is one every summer in Holmdel at a Greek church with very good food. Sorry don't know the name of church, they do have a website though.

            The festival in Holmdel is my favorite. We've been going for years. Delicious food and great homemade pastries. Avoid the wine. They have some nice dance performances by the parish kids, but otherwise there is not much to do but eat.

                hi val- dh and i might try the greek festival you mentioned. one question- why avoid the wine?

                  >> why avoid the wine?
                  In previous years, they've sold a greek wine in a screw-top bottle. Tried it once and did not like it at all. We stick to beer or soda.
                  I don't think your could BYOB, as the festival is a fund-raiser.
                  Enjoy the wonderful food!

            2. Hamilton's Greek Orthodox church is having its Greek festival right now. It's lasting through Sunday. I forget the name of the church though...
