45 Years Strong!

Join us on Bayou St. John for the 2018 New Orleans Greek Festival — 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!
