You don’t have to be Greek to celebrate Greek Day. You just have to get to Broadway on Sunday.
That’s right, my keftedes-loving friends, it’s time to get your opa on. What does that mean for those of us who aren’t Greek?
Food, of course!
Do you smell that? That the savoury deliciousness of 23 food vendors in one location. All serving authentic Greek fare.
Sweet mother of saganaki! (Greek myth: when I lived in Athens in the ’90s, the country ran out of saganaki.)
Load up on Loukoumades, gulp down a gyro and, after you get your fill of fillos, head down to the Boutari Wines Cooking Tent and take in some fiery cooking demonstrations by local Greek chefs (including Harry Kambolis from NU).
Still hungry? Hit the Hellenic Experience Tent and sample some Greek olives. Or try some Greek coffee or tea.
Check out the Athenian Agora Market Place for cool souvenirs by local artisans and don’t forget to take in all the music and dancing on the main stage.
There’s also a kids area where little ones can make olive wreaths, hats and mosaics. Face painting, balloons and bouncy castle will also be in full effect. Opa!
