Roanoke Greek Festival
September 15 @ 11:00 am - September 17 @ 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until September 17, 2023
Excitement surrounds the return of the 2023 Roanoke Greek Festival. Voted Best Food Festival in Southwest Virginia by the Virginia Living Magazine, the festival will be held September 15th, 16th and 17th, 2023 at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, 30 Huntington Blvd., Roanoke, VA. The festival is open (rain or shine) Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 12 noon to 7 p.m., with free admission.
Attendees will enjoy Greek cuisine such as Moussaka, Pastichio, Souvlakia (grilled chicken or pork tenderloin), Gyros, Tyropita (cheese puffs), Spanakopita (spinach puffs), Greek salad, Dolmades, Greek-style Green Beans, and Rice. To satisfy your sweet tooth cravings, pastries such as Baklava, Galaktoboureko, Almond Crescent Cookies, and many others will be available. Greek wine and beer, along with Greek coffee and Frappe, are on the menu as well.
Our hope is to bring a Taste of Greece to Roanoke and the surrounding communities. This includes our Greek dancers in traditional attire dancing to the beat of our seven member, live Greek band; a Greek marketplace offering a wide selection of items for purchase; church tours describing the history of Orthodoxy which traces its origin to the day of Pentecost, and our unique Byzantine artwork and design.
If time doesn’t allow eating on church grounds, we offer the only Greek food drive-thru in this area during our 3-day event. You will be able to purchase meals and pastries, along with our traditional Greek wines, to go! The drive-thru is located at 3415 Williamson Road, NW, Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 12 noon to 6 p.m. Visit the “Drive-Thru Menu” link at RoanokeGreekFestival.com.
A portion of this year’s proceeds will be donated to the Local Office on Aging and the Blue Ridge Autism and Achievement Centers.
