Sacramento Greek Festival


Posted on August 27


Heavy on the baklava, ouzo and “opas!,” Sacramento’s Greek Festival, held every Labor Day weekend, is always a big, lively party. But this year, its 50th, promises to be one for the history books. In addition to the usual suspects—fabulous food, live music and dancing, and a “plaka” (shopping mart) selling Greek clothing and art—there will be special appearances by such local celebs as artist Gregory Kondos and wine author/expert Rick Kushman. And here’s something not to be missed: Chef Patrick Mulvaney will compete in a cooking throwdown against Sacramento’s top YiaYias (Greek grandmas).

What: Sacramento Greek Festival
When: Friday, Aug. 30–Sunday, Sept. 1
Where: Sacramento Convention Center, 1400 J St., Sacramento
Cost: $5 general; free on Aug. 30 from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. and free for children under 12

Guests were treated to food and drink from nearly 100 local eateries and bars. Other vendors auctioned off wares and services ranging from hand-woven free trade baskets to modern art work and vintage photographs.
