29th ANNUAL MARIETTA GREEK FESTIVAL
Want to experience Greece, but don’t have time for the flight?
Come to the Marietta Greek Festival on May 17th, 18th & 19th, and leave your suitcases behind!
The largest cultural event in Northwest Georgia attracts a diverse crowd and will delight all of your senses! You’ll pick up the scent of delicious Greek dishes as your palate is tempted by heavenly Greek pastries. Your ears will perk up at the live music, while your eyes gaze upon the authentically costumed dancers as they perform in the South’s only Greek amphitheater! Inside the Agora (marketplace), you’ll have a unique shopping experience courtesy of a multitude of merchants. Outside, your children can participate in various games, activities and crafts in the Kid’s Area. Niko’s Pub offers adults the opportunity to quench their thirst with Greek wine, beer, and liqueur, and the new Greek Street Food tent offers delightful portable food options. Be sure to take a guided tour of the Byzantine style sanctuary to see the beautiful iconography and learn more about the Orthodox faith!
Admission is $5 and children under 12 are free. This year the festival is offering special pre-sale packages that include free admission, as well as other substantial coupon deals.
The festival donates a portion of its proceeds to the local community through two wonderful organizations: Habitat for Humanity, and the Philoptochos (Friends of the Poor) Society.
