Forty Years in the Making!
Greek Festival New Orleans turns 40 this year, and we are celebrating the Big 4-Opa in style. All of your favorite foods, drinks, events, and entertainments are back, along with some special surprises. Be on the lookout for veteran festival workers wearing a special button with red ribbons; they were here at the first Greek Festival New Orleans (and probably worked that one, too!).
Follow us on
Come out and enjoy our 40th Annual Hellenic party with a uniquely New Orleans flair!
Tireless volunteers have been hard at work preparing old favorites and new additions! There's plenty of room for everyone since we expanded and reconfigured the grounds to better accomodate our guests. Join us for delicious food, delightful drinks, and entertainment the entire family will enjoy.
Browse the web site for information on new items, event schedules, and a comprehensive list of our fabulous Greek cuisine. We're looking forward to another great Greek Festival, and look forward to seeing you there. Opa!
