Just when I thought we have exhausted the list of all the Greek Festivals in California last month, we have two more to talk about and visit in October.
With Fall arriving, the air is crisp and the trees are just beginning to turn color, spend a day having the last bites of your favorite Greek dish or dessert at one of these festive happenings.

Congratulations to Resurrection Greek Orthodox Church in Castro Valley for celebrating their 40th Year!!!

Hi Mary, Just saw a posting of your web/blog California Greek Girl ! An excellent source indeed for Greek and non-Greeks. Appreciate your mentioning our Greek Festival in Castro Valley Oct 7,8,9 and the we think the best of the season. This year it’s our 40th annual! If you and your husband can make it up please stop by, would love to treat you to our famous authentic delicious food! OPA!
