Buffalo festival season kicks off with Greek Fest

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Mamma Mia! The Greek Festival is back in town this weekend at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Buffalo.

The first Greek Heritage Festival was held in 1977 to acquaint the Queen City with Greek culture, faith, food and entertainment. Despite its humble beginnings, the Greek Festival has grown into a special three-day event of live music and dancing — not to mention the food.

Gyros and spanakopita are on the menu, along with multiple pastries for the sweet tooth. Desserts can be enjoyed in the Kafenion, or coffee shop, and be accompanied by coffee or tea. Continuous live Greek music will play in the food tent and the bar tent by such bands as The Grecian Strings and the Ellada Live Band. Greek and Hellenic dancers will perform throughout the day.

The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $3 and children 12 and under get in for free. An ATM is available if needed.
