New Orleans Greek Fest

New Orleans Greek Fest

New Orleans Greek Fest kicks off May 25. This year we are helping New Orleans celebrate its 300th birthday, with special events planned for the entire weekend! As always, there will be homemade traditional Greek food, wine, pastries, and other great desserts! Come see our live, traditional Greek dancing, and listen to the live Greek band playing near the Bayou. Finish up by touring our beautiful Cathedral, getting our annual poster, and visiting our Greek grocery with delectable cheeses, dips, spices, and much more — Opa!

Family Fun

There’s plenty to do and see at this year’s Greek Festival New Orleans — bring your family and experience our family’s rich culture! Take a guided tour of the Cathedral, watch the Hellenic Dancers perform, listen and dance to live Greek music, and relax on the Bayou while the kids enjoy the Athenian Playground.

Dance and Music

Our dancers practice throughout the year in preparation for the Festival. On stage, they perform a variety of Greek dances for your entertainment. Enjoy authentic Greek music performed live!. Learn the Zorba and other traditional dances out on the Bayou under the stars!

Cathedral Tours

Holy Trinity Cathedral is the oldest Greek Orthodox church in the Americas, and in 2014 celebrated its 150th anniversary! Be sure to take a free guided tour about our faith, history, and Cathedral artifacts, given by our priest, Father George Wilson. Our Holy Trinity chanter, Dimitri Golfos, will be a part of every tour. In the cathedral, view a curated exhibition of vintage photos, documents and newspaper articles that reflect the history and faith of our community for over 150 years. This year in commemoration of the Tricentennial of New Orleans, a special panel will be dedicated to the history of the first Greeks in New Orleans beginning in 1760s.
