In a media release from the Greek Orthodox Community Board of Directors and the Organising Committee of the Greek Festival Brighton Le Sands it was announced that the event would be postponed from its scheduled date of May 27th, 2023, due ‘to unforeseen circumstances’.
The statement reads:
“We understand that this news will be disappointing for everyone looking forward to the festival, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. However, the decision was taken after careful consideration and in the best interest of our guests, vendors, volunteers, and staff.
“We are working closely with our partners, sponsors, and vendors to reschedule the event as soon as possible, and we will keep everyone informed of the new date once it is finalized.”
The much anticipated return of the festival to Bay Street had gained much momentum from stallholders, sponsors and stakeholders.
The statement also notes that “the Raffle Ticket scheduled to be drawn on the day of the festival, will be drawn on Friday 26th May 2023 at the George Dalaras’ Concert.”
