Greek Fest will continue its annual Knoxville tradition next month, celebrating

the culture's unique life and food.

The festivities will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 15 and 16 from

11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at St. George Greek Orthodox Church, 4070 Kingston Pike.

The a la carte menu is available throughout the festival and includes

traditional favorites such as roast lamb, chicken in a pocket, shish-ka-bob,

spinach pie, gyros, Greek salad and more.

On Friday, there will be a drive thru service at lunch for a take-out

box lunch which will include souvlaki, spanikopita, small Greek salad and

baklava. Call 522-5043 before Friday to place your order.

The festival will also include music, singing and dancing. Live bouzouki

music, energetic Greek dancing and enchanting songs will be part of the

entertainment. Greek youth will also perform folk dances and lead spontaneous

dancing with guests.

Church tours, artwork and shopping will also be offered to guests. Admission

is $2 for adults and free to children. The adult admission ticket could

also win a trip for two to Greece.
