It’s that time of the year again. Mark your calendars!!!
This is one of two annual events that I have looked forward to every year for the past 6-7 years that I have been going. There is nothing on this Earth like the hospitality of Greeks. Every year, I feel like I am coming “home” to great food and great entertainment. One year, my Mustang got stuck in the mud on the church front lawn where I had parked, about a half dozen teenage boys rushed to help and pushed my car out. I will never own another rear wheel drive car again…
This event is unlimited! Even if you don’t show up, or come at a different day/time, you won’t be marked as a “no show”. I am posting the day/time I plan to be there if you’d like to join me and others. This year we will be doing an evening Meetup to beat the heat (hopefully). Let’s eat, drink, dance, and shop under the stars!! There will be a cash bar (bring cash) serving wine, beer, and Ouzo (of course). Be sure to snag some pastries to take home to friends and coworkers (assuming you like them that much).
There are also tours offered of the amazing Greek Orthodox Church if you like. Check the website for times and schedule your stay accordingly. The Church has, in the past, been very open to picture taking inside.

Last year’s event was a great success, but it could be even better this year … with YOU! If you have not attended the Festival before, we invite you to come out and learn about the true mean of what we call “Kefi!”
“How do I know if the Nashville Greek Festival is for me?” Simple. Do you like to dance? Do you like to eat? Do you like to have a good time with family and friends, old and new? Then this is where you belong!
