You Won’t Want To Miss Arkansas’ Biggest Ethnic Food Festival
If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, we have the perfect event for you. The 34th Annual International Greek Food Festival in Little Rock is happening this weekend (May 18-20, 2018). Let’s see what the state’s biggest ethnic food fest has to offer.
It's time for the 34th Annual International Greek Food Festival!
Entry to the fest is only three canned food items or $3 per person. All proceeds benefit more than 30 local charities.
This three-day festival is held in Little Rock at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.
The church is located at 1100 Napa Valley Dr., Little Rock, Arkansas 72211. The festival is open from Fri-Sat 11 am - 9 pm and from 11 am - 3 pm on Sunday.
Entertainment will include a wide variety of world dancers.
World styles will include Greek-American Folk, Irish, Dabkeh Middle Eastern, and others.
There will also be an area for kids.
The kid area will have crafts, face painting, games and rides. Picky eaters will find solace in the area's hot dog stand.
Stop by the Old World Market to peruse all the Greek goodies.
Vendors will include the Annunciation Book Store, imported specialty foods, and locally-made pastries.
The entertainment will be fantastic but we're really looking forward to the food.
After all, this is a food festival.
You'll be able to fill up on all of your favorite Greek foods and try some new ones as well.
Gyros, falafel, and baklava will be all around as well as spanakopita (filo dough filled with layers of feta cheese, spinach and herbs), loukanikos (flavorful pork), melomacharona (honey-dipped cookies), and tons more. Start your foodie adventure with a "My Big Fat Greek Platter," it comes with generous portions of pastitsio, spanakopita, and Greek chicken paired with a crisp Greek salad.
This is one delicious culture festival that the whole family will love.
We're looking forward to this fun-filled weekend!
