Greek Fest

Since its first year more than 25 years ago, Greek Fest has immersed attendees in Greek culture and culinary tradition with a four-day indoor and outdoor festival. Each day, visitors can explore a cultural exhibition spanning traditional crafts, art replicas, and religious artefacts; guided tours roam within the local Byzantine Greek Orthodox church to highlight colourful iconography and ornate interior architecture. A massive white-tented dome hosts live music played on painted mandolins while dance troupes perform regional dances. Children can work out extra adrenalin in a kids' area, where coaches supervise soccer-training zones to keep them away from wild vuvuzelas. A contest running throughout the festival can award two participants with a trip to Greece, allowing them to further explore Greek culture.

Foodies can placate their palates with a range of authentic Greek dishes, assembled from the grill and formed into plates of souvlaki, chicken-filled pitas, and beef donair kebabs. Mythologists can also explore the obsessions of Dionysus at a Greek wine tasting led by local sommeliers Costa Elles.
