Let’s go Shopping!
Looking for something special to remember the Festival? Two main areas for your shopping pleasure will be available.
Want to stock up on your favorite Greek delicacies? Check out the Greek Grocery inside the Hellenic Cultural Center for Greek specialties such as cheeses, olives, homemade dips and appetizers, frozen entrees, Greek honey (featured this year), and much more.
HOLY TRINITY ARCHIVES
Tucked away in a corner of the Greek Grocery is the Holy Trinity Archives Store that offers beautiful photographic reproductions of the four 1872 icons that hung in the original “Little Church” along with unique gift cards and religious items.
AGORA and T-SHIRT/POSTERS
At the Agora you will find imported gift items, select jewelry, and Greek novelties while the T-Shirt booth will have an assortment of shirts, hats, and other apparel for adults and children, as well as the 2023 Greek Festival poster created by Jennifer Serio Psalmonds
GRAB AND GO – PASTRY EXPRESS
Then, on the way out, stop by the NEW Grab and Go booth to stock up on some favorites that you enjoyed on the grounds. Among the items available at this booth will be individual servings of moussaka, pastitsio, and dolmades. Conveniently located next to Grab and Go will be Pastry Express for an extra box or two of baklava and/or assorted pastries.
Holy Trinity Museum Store
Festival visitors can purchase prints of Byzantine icons suitable for framing that were created in the mid-1800s for the original Little Holy Trinity Church. Each icon print has a certificate of authenticity created by the Holy Trinity Archives Committee. Other items representing the historic collection of Holy Trinity will also be available: prayer bracelets handmade in Greece and blessed in the Saint Spyridon Church in Corfu and Greek jewelry imported from Europe, golf shirts with Byzantine logo, Holy Trinity icon notecards with images of Holy Trinity icons saved through the years, Orthodox books, and Commemorative Consecration ornaments. Also available will be a reproduction from Holy Trinity’s historic collection: an art print of the first little church commemorating 150 years in New Orleans also with a certificate of authenticity. All proceeds from this booth go directly to supporting the conservation of Holy Trinity relics and artifacts.
