One of the best reasons to live in Sacramento (right up there with the proximity to both San Francisco and Tahoe) is the diversity we have and availability to immerse your children into another culture. Personally, the Greek Food Festival is my favorite way to do that!
The Sacramento Greek Festival is held each year during Labor Day weekend at the Sacramento Convention Center. Friday, September 3rd from 11AM to 11PM, Saturday, the 4th from 12PM to 11PM and Sunday, September 5th from 12PM to 10PM you can take a tasting tour of Greece, stroll through Hellenica (a cultural display), sample Greek wine and beer and enjoy music of “Mythos” band– all without the pricey plane ticket.
Don’t miss the authentic Greek cuisine and pastries, Greek folk dancing (there are even lessons available), the Pantopolion (marketplace of imported gifts and jewelry) and cooking demonstrations! General admission is $5, seniors (55 and older) are $4 and children 12 and younger are *FREE* and if you click HERE you can print a $2 off admission coupon. Also, show up on Friday from 11AM to 3PM and admission is *FREE* for everyone!
The Sacramento Convention Center is located at 1400 J Street and for more information click HERE.
We’ll see you there!
