Savannah Greek Festival, October 7th-October 9th
This year marks the 70th annual Savannah Greek Festival. We all know that lately things have looked a little different and this year’s festival is no exception. Due to the COVID pandemic and the City of Savannah’s moratorium on large events, this year’s Greek Festival will be PICK-UP ONLY with ONLINE ORDERING ONLY on October 7, 8 & 9, 2021. While a traditional Greek Festival would be a lot more fun, safety is our number one concern. With that being said, we will be offering a variety of authentic Greek dishes for pick-up only. Once our website is updated and ordering “turned on” you will be able to place an order and come to the Hellenic Center for pick up by driving up or walking up. In an extra effort to remain safe, there will be no walk-up or drive-up ordering. They are very excited to be able to host a festival this year, even if it is in a different form and thank you for your support. OPA!
