St. Demetrios Greek Festival

St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Montlake has been hosting their annual Greek Festival for 45 years now, and this weekend, you can join them in celebrating with some homemade souvlaki, gyros and baklava.

The festival will also include Greek folk dancing and music, a Greek deli, and tours of the church and its religious artifacts. There is free parking available in the area, and a shuttle bus from both Northgate and Kirkland.

    Sorry, Zee! I haven’t been, but it does sound really fun. I’m actually going to be running the 5k for Oktoberfest, I think, but I might try to get over to Montlake. There was a similar festival in my hometown, for the Greek Orthodox Easter, and it was always a blast :)
