MACON, Ga. — The Central Georgia Greek Festival turns 15… opa!

The Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church is hosting the 3-day event and people came out on Saturday to celebrate.

Over the 3-day weekend, Holy Cross parishioners and many volunteers come together to serve delicious authentic Greek dishes from Central Georgia.

The festival also serves desserts, with well-known traditional baklava and other delicious treats.

While people snacked, they could listen to live Greek music and watch dancers from Marietta.

People also had the opportunity to visit the Greek Orthodox Church and receive tours from Father Theodore about the building and religion.

In addition to the tours, there were also several vendors who had imported Greek clothing and products, such as spices, olive oil, feta cheese, souvenirs, jewelry, etc.

The celebration attracted several people who were excited to come out and celebrate Greek culture.

“Everyone is so excited to be back through Covid and past this and to be back, to be able to listen to Greek music, Greek dancing, to eat, to buy things…it’s a good time,” said Maria Economy, who was in attendance.
