The leaves are slowly changing here in California, and the weather is migrating to a cooler breeze. The days are getting shorter, as we glance at our clocks late into the afternoon. But it doesn’t mean you can’t throw on a light sweater and venture out to the nearest Greek Festival in your area.

Greek Words to learn as you’re heading out the door:

“Yia-sou” Hello

“Kali Mera – Good Morning

“Kali Orexi” – Bon Appetit

“Agape” – Love  (just in case)


This month we have four Greek Festivals in California, for you to visit. This is a family event, fun for children of all ages, foodies will be in the hands of the best Greek cooks, with music and dancing to keep you hopping all day long!
