Let’s get those dancing shoes on and head over to any of these Greek Festivals in California in the upcoming weeks of May 2015, for some mouth-watering BBQ and heart-pounding Greek line dancing! If you have never attended a festival this is your chance.

You will witness what the Greek family is all about – Yiayias (grandmothers) in the Greek food stands proudly selling their traditional Greek pastries, Papous (grandfathers) BBQ-ing with the young, teaching the next generation how it is done, and live Greek music for dancing and sing-a-longs.

Don’t miss out because it’s all about the food and love.
