Experience a taste of Greece without the airfare! Join us on October 14-16, 2021 from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. for the 48th Annual Greek Festival! As one of Birmingham’s oldest and most anticipated cultural events, the festival has been an act of love from Birmingham’s Greek community to the city of Birmingham going back four generations. During our three-day festival you will experience the Greeks’ legendary zest for life and delicious authentic Greek cuisine. You can also enjoy Greek music, dancing and a warm spirited atmosphere that embraces everyone as family.
The festival offers free admission, indoor and outdoor dining and individually priced food plates. Be sure to stroll through The Greek Market Place which has Mediterranean and Orthodox Christian souvenirs. Free parking is located in the former Liberty National parking building located one block away on 20th Street (Richard Arrington Blvd) between 3rd and 4th Avenue. The convenient drive thru is available each day from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Our servers will greet you, take your big or small order, and deliver right to your vehicle.
The Holy Trinity – Holy Cross Greek Orthodox parish was chartered in 1906 and is the 4th oldest Greek Orthodox parish in the Southeast. The beautiful and inspiring Byzantine interior of the basilica enhances the Orthodox Christian’s worship of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Please take a self-guided tour between 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. during our three-day festival. Parishioners will be available to answer any questions. Please call ahead to schedule a tour for large school and church groups. Since 1972 and with your help we have donated over three million dollars to local and national charities. In recent years, these charities have included: Magic Moments, The Exceptional Foundation, The Ronald McDonald House, The Fire House Shelter, Alzheimer’s of Central Alabama, The Wellhouse, Jimmie Hale Mission, Safe House and more. †
