Philadelphia, PA – Smiles were in abundance at the Evangelismos Greek Festival on Saturday. The church dance group is seen here posed for a photo following their performance under the big tent.
Guests that attended were treated to four days of homemade Greek foods, folk dancing and the cultural traditions of Greece. Live Greek music, dancing, and perfect weather capped off each evening, where this neighborhood became a Greek village. It’s an authentic experience exported practically onto Bustleton Avenue. Many locals can be seen here throughout the day, enjoying a Greek coffee and pastry. Everything is made right on the premises just like they do in Greece.
Evangelismos of Theotokos Greek Orthodox Church hosts two festivals annually and is considered to have the best Greek food in Northeast Philadelphia. If you missed this festival, you could catch the next one in September. Many of these Hellenes head back to the mother country Greece during the summer break.
