A Taste of Greece Annual Festival This Weekend in Irvine
Opa! The 36th annual "A Taste of Greece" at St. Paul's Greek Orthodox Church in Irvine is this weekend.
There will be vendors selling gyros, pastichio (Greek lasagna), loucanico (Greek sausage), spanakopita (spinach and feta pie), dolmathes (stuffed grape leaves), saganaki (Greek brandy-flamed cheese) and so much teeth-rotting baklava to give your oral hygenist nightmares. There will be dancing, music, and wine. As with every year, the party lasts three days.
Festival hours are 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, June 26; noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 27; and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday, June 28.
The fee to enter is just $3 per person. Children under 10 and seniors over 65 are free on Saturday, June 27 from noon to 5 p.m. But if you print this flyer, admission is free!
