The Canberra Greek Glendi was a prosperous weekend filled with Greek customs, cuisine, music, and non-stop dancing
The event was part of the multicultural festival and is known as Canberra's second most popular tourist attraction, as well as the biggest multicultural celebration in Australia.
The sizzling heat did not deter the crowds from attending with 350,000 people attending over the three days.
A record 170 different cultures were also represented in 250 stalls along City Walk, including some for the first time, such as Afghanistan and Tibet. It’s what led to the festival’s expansion into Glebe Park this year, with welcome shade for attendees and stallholders on a sweltering weekend.
There were also 30 showcases and performances across the festival’s eight stages.
The Greek Community of Canberra put on a show for the first time since 2020 to celebrate everything Greek on Sunday taking the main stage at the festival and they did not disappoint.
Thank you to all the volunteers from the Canberra Olympic Football Club, Canberra Hellenic Dancers, Hellenic Youth Club of Canberra, Canberra Mandolin Orchestra and the entire Greek Community of Canberra for all their hard work in putting on such a great show!
