Sydney set to celebrate “all things Greek” this weekend


Now in its 38th year, the Greek Festival of Sydney is one of Australia’s largest and longest-running annual cultural events and is set to kick off tomorrow, with two days of non-stop entertainment including live music from local and international musicians, dancing, food and so much more for the entire family.

An initiative of the Greek Orthodox Community of New South Wales, the Greek Festival is a great multicultural event where all Sydneysiders are invited to celebrate and explore the beauty of Greek culture through the arts, history, entertainment, and gastronomy.

The Greek Fest takes over Sydney’s Darling Harbour Precinct on Saturday 29th and Sunday 1stof March with free music, entertainment, Greek food and drinks, market stalls, dance performances and more, as this much- loved festival is an event for all ages.

For all you foodies, there will be an array of Greek treats on offer, including souvlaki, loukoumades, and of course, you can grab a Greek coffee, Frappe, Freddo, Mythos beer and Ouzo anytime throughout the day.

This year, audiences are in for a special treat on Sunday evening with a free performance by the incredibly-talented Greek singer, Giota Negka, on her first visit to Australia.

Indubitably one of the most prominent multicultural events in Sydney, and a must-do in the events calendar, Greek Fest Darling Harbour will give Sydneysiders a taste of Greece as the foreshore of Darling Harbour comes alive. This year’s program is new and exciting, and sure to showcase the richest display of Greek culture in Australia.

Dates: Saturday 29thof February and Sunday 1st of March 2020

Time: Saturday: 3pm till 10pm, Sunday: 10am to 10pm

Address: Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour, Sydney
