The annual Atlanta Greek Festival is one of the city's landmark ethnic festivals. It takes place every September at The Greek Orthodox Annunciation Cathedral at 2500 Clairmont Road, NE, in Atlanta. The festival features the Cathedral lecture tours, an "Agora" artisan market, lots of Greek music and dancing, rides and games for kids as well as tons of delicious Greek food.
The Atlanta Greek Festival features a live entertainment stage with award-winning dance troupes showcasing dances and costumes of parts of Greece—from the Kalamatianos to Tsamikos.
