Yup! Uhu! It’s the biggest Greek Festival of the year in the Delaware Valley. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox church of Wilmington, Delaware is known for the big one. With drive by pickups, week-long live music and lines around the church and through the parking lot, truth be told, they are certainly all that. Cosmos Philly attended the annual event mid-week and saw that it’s all true.
Greeks and Philhellenes packed the parking lots, enjoying the food, danced to the music all day and into the evening, each night last week. Atlantis of Philadelphia, who has been playing the festival for some 25 years is part of the family that keeps growing.
If you want to experience the ultimate in attendance, visit this festival. Parking along its streets is jammed for blocks. the church hall/gymnasium was full and all the games rides and food lines were kept busy for 5 straight days, with record crowds and profits. Needless to say, the atmosphere was great. Everyone we talked with was warm and friendly, confirming the term, filoxenia. Congratulations Holy Trinity of Wilmington, Delaware.
