Greek Food Festival at the Annunciation Cathedral

Greek Island. Watercolor by Nancy Ewart

Whether you dream of visiting the Acropolis in Athens, or swimming off the shores of sunny Mykonos, you can get the best Greek food in the Bay Area at Annunciation Cathedral’s own A Taste of Greece, the only Greek festival in San Francisco.
Souvlaki, Gyros, Moussaka, Spanokopita – all of your favorites will be there along with live music and traditional dance performances. The food is lovingly cooked by members of the local Greek community and it has the genuine taste of Greece, served with smiles and gratitude. Because the Cathedral has not been finished, the courtyard where they usually have booths full of Greek themed goods is closed but I was assured that it will be open by next year.

Greek festivals are lots of fun here, too. And the food. . . . nom, nom, nom. It's always a phenomenal family affair with lots of generations in attendance. The big one here has carnival rides, so kids love it, as well. I love the watercolor you did at the top of the page, Nancy. Really gives a feel of the Greek islands.
