Saint George Greek Orthodox Church has announced that their 2017 Greek Festival will take place on SATURDAY, FEB. 25 and SUNDAY, FEB. 26 on the church grounds at 74-109 Larrea Street in Palm Desert from 11 AM to 8 PM both days.

“Our goal is to provide our festival guests with a great experience”, said Festival Chairman George Argyros. “Our motto is “Be Greek For A Day” meaning, come to the festival, experience the delicious Greek food & pastries, learn about the unique culture and religion if you wish, join in the Greek dancing to live music, and be happy and carefree.”

The festival will be offering many of its same past amenities; in addition to the food and dancing, there is a children’s “Fun Zone,” Church tours, vendor booths and lots of shopping. And for the first time this year, the festival will have available two El Paseo Courtesy Carts for festival attendees pick up and drop off from various locations stretching from the church to the corner of El Paseo & San Pablo and back.

This new service will assist festival goers and will be operating continuously during festival hours. Saint George Greek Orthodox Church has been holding the Greek Festival for over 21 years and all food is prepared locally by church volunteers. This Greek Festival, unique to the Coachella Valley, is a must attend event.
