The annual Nashville Greek Festival takes place during a weekend in September at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Nashville, Tennessee. Thousands of visitors can try world-famous Greek foods such as moussaka, gyros, dolmades, baklava, as well as Greek coffee, Greek beer, and Greek wine.
Live music and dancing every day help you experience Greek culture. Holy Trinity church will also be open for educational tours about the Orthodox faith and the local Greek community.
The first Greek festival in Nashville was hosted by Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in 1987. Since then, it has become one of the most popular ethnic festivals in the city. Greek bouzouki and colourful Greek folk dance performances don't leave spectators indifferent. Many choose to try Greek dancing for themselves.
Dozens of vendors at the Nashville Greek Festival offer a variety of art and craft items: jewelry, Greek clothing, paintings, ceramics, icons, copper, books, leather goods, and other souvenirs.
