Come to Our Little Greek Island on Highland!
"Our Little Greek Island on Highland" will be a true getaway for everyone, as we will make you feel that you have flown thousands of miles and are enjoying the beautiful Greek Isles! Besides food and marketplace items, festival-goers will enjoy learning about the Greek Orthodox faith during the sanctuary tours with our new priest, Father James Berends, listening to Live Greek music from a returning band from years past, “Kosta Kostanis," and taking in the performances of both traditional and modern Greek dancing by the Athenian Dance Troupe.
Free Greek dance lessons are also given for those who want to learn how to dance!
It’s Mother’s Day weekend, so it’s the perfect time to celebrate in a special way with your wife, Mother, Grandmother, or any woman that has influenced your life. Don’t worry about shopping for a gift either; our marketplace has wonderful gift items and fabulous jewelry that are sure to please!
The festival will go on rain or shine!
