Philadelphia, PA – Fall festival season in the Delaware Valley winded down last week with Evangelismos Greek Orthodox Church as the last stop for Cosmos Philly. Intimate and cozy are the best words to describe this neighborhood event. It’s a one-stop, all under one tent event, squeezed to the edges of the church parking lot.

Just a few yards in every direction, food, dancing, seats, and sounds blended together to create a warm, inviting and vibrant atmosphere. From our chairs, we could smell authentic homemade food and overhear real village Greek. It truly felt like a small Panigiri had been transferred to this end of Philadelphia.

Evangelismos Greek Orthodox church is known for its traditional Greek food that is made by hand every year in the church hall for two festivals that they host. They even make their own “Filo”. The senior ladies get together a few weeks before the big event and mix the batch, cut and prep the doe.
