Press Release: The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Pensacola is preparing for the 55th annual Greek Festival.

The Pensacola Greek Festival is one of the Pensacola Bay area’s signature festivals mixing southern hospitality with Hellenic culture and cuisine. Live Greek music, youth folk dancing, and church tours make 1720 West Garden Street the place to be during the second weekend in October.

The 3 day cultural event provides an opportunity for the Pensacola Greeks to share their heritage, culture and faith with the local community. The event is held on the church grounds at 1720 West Garden Street under large tents and features a variety of delicious Greek dinners, sandwiches, coffee, desserts, drinks, and shopping in the Greek Market.

Hours are Friday from 11am- 10pm, Saturday from 11am- 10pm, and Sunday from Noon – 6pm. As always, admission to the festival is free.
