1) “Food-Only” Event
You won’t find many knick-nacks this year
You know those cool oil burners? You won’t find them this year because Greenville’s Greek Fest has cleared out all but one table to make way for food. From gyros to pizza to baklava sundaes, all but a couple of tents are dishing out food. The amphitheater lawn is a welcome place to eat, but they also have a couple of large tents setup with chairs and handicap tables if you want to escape the sun.
2) Less Crowded
The Drive-Thru has reduced the foot traffic
Previous Greek Festivals have boasted large crowds, long lines, and fighting for parking. This year people adopted a “drop-in” approach. You can pull into the drive-thru, place your order from menu of pre-assembled meals, and pull out within minutes! The church’s kitchen buzzing with cooks as they prepare the most popular meals. Even Father Mike is busy slicing bread for all the ready-made meals.
3) The Cathedral is Open to Virtual Vistors
Check out the 360° Virtual Tour
Even if the event is outdoors only, you can still tour St. George Greek Orthodox cathedral. We completed and uploaded this Google Street View tour in time for the 2021 Greenville Greek Festival.
