We're introducing a couple new exciting options for online tickets this year! First, we are offering an Early Bird General Admission Ticket for just $7, same price as 2016! This offer will be available until May 12, 2017, two weeks before our event. After May 12th our General Admission tickets will be $8, same price as cash at the Entrance Gate.
Secondly, we are excited to offer you the $17 New Orleans Greek Festival Weekend Pass (a $24 value)! Jazz Fest has it's Brass Pass; Greek Fest now has it's 'Blue Pass!' This great deal, available exclusively online, admits the holder each day of the Festival. Purchasers will receive their Weekend Pass when they present their electronic or printed barcode at the Entrance Gate. Please note that although Weekend Pass holders may not be used to admit more than one person on a specific day (e.g. admit three people on Friday rather than one person each day), Weekend Passes are transferrable from day to day (e.g. you can use it on Friday and Saturday for admittance and give it to someone else to use on Sunday). You may pick up your Weekend Pass at the Entrance Gate during normal Festival hours (no Passes will be mailed or available ahead of time). All sales for the Weekend Pass will end on May 24th, or when we run out (supplies are limited so be sure to order yours soon!).
We hope to see you this year! Our festival, held annually on Memorial Day Weekend, will be from May 26-28, 2017. The pastry makers are already hard at work creating their sweet delicacies, the Greek dancers have been practicing their traditional dances for the weekend performances, and the Greek Kitchen is preparing its menu for another wonderful year!
When you attend the New Orleans Greek Festival you not only enjoy the great Greek Food, Culture, and Family Fun that we've shared with New Orleans for over forty years, but you also support a church community that has been in New Orleans for over 150 years!
