The Vancouver Greek Summer Festival (not to be confused with Greek Day, which took place this past weekend in Kitsilano) is an annual celebration of food, entertainment, and family fun. From the famous “Roast Lamb” and “Loukoumades” (a specialty Greek dessert) to the dozens of live singers and dancers on the Performance Stage to face-painting for the children and free spirited adults, this is one festival you should check out. The festival straddles the Burnaby/Vancouver boarder on Boundary and 29th. It’s Free to check out and I definitely recommend it!
Greek Fest has always been free to attend and is run entirely by volunteers. All proceeds go back to the community, whether to finish the church or to various charities and community organizations. In the past, Greek Fest has supported St. John Ambulance, Collingwood Neighborhood House, BC Children’s Hospital, and the Vancouver Fire Fighters Burn Fund and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of BC and Yukon.
Join them from June 29th to July 11th 2010 to Live a Day the Greek Way!
