The Greek fest is back for 2021! Expect the same food, fun, and festivities as before, but this time with a socially distanced, drive-through twist. The festival will run at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church for 4 days as usual, but upgraded so that patrons can drive through and experience the culture and tradition of the festival the way we all remember.  The best part? It’s free!
