Greek Festivals in California for October 2016

Post image for Greek Festivals in California for October 2016

It looks like more Greek Festivals are happening in California this month! Check out the new changes. We are adding two new dates for festivals  – Los Angeles, and Bakersfield. And Temecula Greek Fest is on the same schedule as always.

Did you know: The Dionysia was a large festival in ancient Athens in honor of the god Dionysus, the central events of which were the theatrical performances of dramatic tragedies and, from 487 BC, comedies.

So as you are driving through California, stop by and get your Greek-fix of delicious BBQ, Baklava, and learn a new dance step or two!

Most interesting the way you put a Greek Festival and ancient activities together. Is this in your cookbook also?
Or have you written it somewhere else? I enjoy your blog tremendously, would love to share with my family.

Hello Dena,
My cookbook is all about Olive Oil. I have many pictures of my travels to Greece in the book.
It’s mostly family recipes and several chapters on how to use olive oil in your cooking. Our trip to Kythera and Corinthos to visit family is in our book.
My book can be ordered from my website, just click the picture.
Thank you for visiting my site.
