Every May Winston Salem's Greek community hosts a Greek festival with home cooked food, gifts, cooking lessons and live music to showcase the rich cultural heritage of the local Greek community. It is a very popular event and you will indeed struggle to get parking!
Its a wonderful place to visit the food is great and tastes Authentic I have been fortunate to have been to Greece a couple of times so have a benchmark. The dancing and music is a lot of fun, for kids. Our daughter is still a little young and poor thing was so sleepy, but in the future she will get more out of it.
Cars are parked everywhere!
The Hellenic Center
Live Music, folks are sitting out enjoying the warm NC evening
Traditional home made sweets, delicious
Chicken, Rice and Green Beans
Pork Souvlaki, sauteed green beans, rice, spinach pie and greek salad, we got a take out as the little one was getting tired.
They also sold Greek Food there and to my delight I found there is a Greek grocery store in town you guessed it, I'll be going there, as they are getting a shipment of honey in 2 weeks!
Does your town have any local festivals, if so tell us about it below......
