St. Basil Greek Festival
Please Note: The 2020 Festival has been rescheduled to September 25-27, 2020.
For the 26th year, the St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church members prepare feverishly for their annual Festival, a celebration of authentic Greek food, music, and dance. A family event for the whole community, Greeks and non-Greeks alike. RAIN or SHINE! FREE!
The ‘Best Little Festival in Town’ is a culinary treat, first and foremost, and St. Basil members are particularly proud of the reputation they have earned as having the best Greek food in the tri-city area. Guests can sample homemade dishes, such as souvlaki, moussaka, lamb with potatoes, and pastitsio. A number of ‘mezedes’ (little tastes) and vegetarian dishes such as stuffed peppers and spinach pie can be followed by the famous ‘Never on Sunday’ ice cream or sweets like baklava, kourabiedes, and loukoumathes. TAKE-OUT is available.
The three-day family event is made possible by the volunteer efforts of the entire St. Basil community. A wonderful demonstration of traditions being passed down from old to young, it is not surprising to find three generations of family members combining efforts in the Church kitchen.
St. Basil is located on 909 River St. (Rt. 4) at 101st St., north of downtown Troy.
RAIN or SHINE! Admission and parking are FREE.
