Upper Darby, PA – Smokey grills, Greek folk dancing and a lot of kefi are part of the big weekend at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, where Greek festival season has launched. Once you valet your car across the street, and walk down the driveway of the church passed the Greek columns, the parking lot converted into a small Greek village comes alive. The language, food, and people are all part of the entertainment.
There are pastries like Loukoumades with lines formed to the left, and Greek coffee on the right. In the center row after endless row’s of seats under this big tent, make it a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere to sit back and enjoy your meal or just people watch. Inside the church hall, an ala carte assortment of traditional Greek food served by parishioners, all homemade await anyone who enters. Add another section of Greek sweets, like galaktoboureko and kourambiethes, and your senses are awakened.
Every hour or so, a folk dance performance takes place outside. A perfect segway to walk off that Greek sweet or meal you just had. It’s going on through Sunday at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox church in Upper Darby. Stop by and enjoy the afternoon or evening with family.
