After 20 years, the Greek Festival of Sydney is returning to Brighton-Le-Sands


After two decades, the Greek Festival of Sydney is set to return to one of its original locations in Brighton-Le-Sands.

The festival will be held on Saturday, May 27th, at Bay St, featuring a full day of Hellenic culture celebrations. The event will include live music, traditional Greek dance performances, food stalls, craft stalls, and more. The Greek Orthodox Community of NSW is organizing the festival as part of this year's Greek Festival of Sydney.

The decision to move the festival back to Brighton-Le-Sands was driven by community demand, according to Greek Festival Chair Nia Karteris. The move is a response to the overwhelming interest from the community in returning the festival to one of its former stomping grounds.

The Greek Festival of Sydney is an annual cultural event celebrating the Greek community in Sydney, Australia. The festival has been held for over 40 years and is one of Sydney's most significant cultural events, attracting thousands of visitors each year.

The festival showcases various aspects of Greek culture, including music, dance, food, and art. It typically takes place over a few weeks, with events across the city. The festival also features a range of activities for children, such as face painting and storytelling.

Overall, the Greek Festival of Sydney is an important cultural event that celebrates the diversity of Sydney's Greek community and promotes a greater understanding and appreciation of Greek culture.
