Greek Festivals in California for June 2014

Welcome to summer!  Grab the kids, Yiayia and Papou and head to any of these four Greek Orthodox Churches for their annual Greek Food Festival.  Spend the day enjoying the rich flavors of Mediterranean Diet. Enjoy gyro sandwiches and lamb kabobs along with the sweet honey desserts of the region. Learn to kick up your heels with live Greek music and a chance to watch the youth entertain you in their traditional costumes of the Greek Islands.

One of my favorite things to order is a Greek coffee or frappe to accompany your honey-drenched baklava, and don’t pass up the opportunity to have your coffee grounds read as you relax ~ OPA!
