The Greek Festival features traditional Greek music, dance, food and more at the Hellenic Cultural Center and Holy Trinity Church, which was founded 150 years ago. There's an array of traditional Greek foods, including spanakopita, rotisserie lamb, loukoumades, baklava and a variety of baked goods, as well as gyro sandwiches, goat burgers and 10 dishes made with feta cheese. Activities include a climbing wall, canoeing on Bayou St. John, a run/walk, face painting, children's crafts and more. On Sunday, there's a toga competition, and anyone wearing a toga to the festival gets free admission.
