The sights, sounds, aromas and flavors of Greece are coming again to Hamptonites and visitors to the East End. The Hamptons Greek Festival will take place again this year, July 11-14, on the grounds of the newly built Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons. Continuing a 34-year tradition, the Festival will highlight authentic Greek dishes and pastries, Hellenic youth dance performances, and live Greek Music nightly.
Thousands have indulged in the rich flavors and hearty portions of the Festival’s menu. Passing down the culinary traditions of their parents and grandparents, the organizers of the Hamptons Greek Festival offer Greek style chicken, pastitsio, spanakopita, souvlaki, gyro and much more. Complementing the main fare are Greek pastries that were praised by Newsday who wrote that its “favorite source in Astoria doesn’t hold a candle, frankly, to the kourabiedes (butter cookies) made by the Church ladies.
Families with children of all ages are welcome at the Festival, where they will find a children and young people’s entertainment area filled with fun rides and games. All are invited to enjoy the food, take in the culture, and dance to music.
The Hamptons Greek Festival will give attendees the opportunity to tour the new beautiful Byzantine Church with its new iconography, which has been described by Southampton Press as “one of the best Houses in Town.”
