Houston Festivals: 45th Annual Greek Festival October 6-9, 2011

One of the great things about the Greek culture is its focus on culture, religion, and most importantly family.  Come celebrate and learn more about this awesome culture at on of Houston’s oldest and favorite events, the 45th annual Greek Festival.  This is a great evening out for groups of friends and for families and the festive atmosphere is highly contagious.  Come get your gyro on and enjoy awesome food and Greek music and folk dancing including a children’s dance program on Saturday and Sunday.  There will also be gifts, crafts, Greek imports and Byzantine iconic art.  There is always great people watching here, too.  Tons of fun.

The event will be held at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox complex in the Montrose area, near the University of St. Thomas.  The address is 3511 Yoakum Blvd. Free parking is available with shuttle service from Lamar High School.  Street parking can be tricky near the event and there are new “no parking” areas, so be sure to check out the map of no-parking zones on their website, where you can also find festival times and event schedules.

Kick off your holiday season festivities at the Greek Festival!
